“Humboldt: Or, The Power of Positive Thinking” by Scott Navicky

Why you’ll love it:

Somewhere betwixt Charles Dickens, Christopher Guest and “South Park,” we find Scott Navicky’s satirical novel, “Humboldt, Or, The Power of Positive Thinking.” We follow Humboldt, an innocent (ignorant?) young soybean farmer, as life upends him on a succession of impossible adventures (from Winesburg, Ohio, to college, Washington, Iraq, New Orleans and many other places). Navicky’s language is relentlessly playful, disorienting and unafraid to offend.

Here’s a link for the full article:
