This four part collection ranges from the emotionally compelling in Tacos to the downright strange in the stories of Diarrhea of the Mind. We get a taste of poetry in Mental Excrement and a short scholastic paper in Intellectual Stool Sample. In this collection, Edgerly shows a range few authors are willing to tackle. And he does so with a combination of wit and sincerity rarely seen together. In Tacos: A Novella, we follow an author by the name of Ethan Thomas as he researches a new book. The subject of his new book is an ordinary man named Davis Paulson. Through Ethans research, we meet Davis, his friends, and his family. And we follow his story through to an emotional conclusion. In Diarrhea of the Mind, we are treated to a collection of short stories. These stories include the tale of a family hike (The Hike), a man struggling with questionable feelings (Shame?), and others with darker undertones, such as Liet, Incident on the Roadway, and Arryn. Mental Excrement gives us Edgerlys first forays into poetry, with varying moods. He ponders in I Often Sit and Wonder and Am I Dreaming. He pines in I Love You, My Dear. And he reaches that rare junction of humor and verse in A Bachelors Morn. Intellectual Stool Sample is the final section of the collection. This section holds one paper written by Edgerly while a student at University. This paper offers a brief insight into his mind by discussing his feelings on friendship, and, in a way, his unique personality, in Friends.
