Love is a Dog from Hell

Litsa Dremousis suggests titles for Charles Bukowski’s children’s books:

Why Is Grandpa Heaving?

The Years Will Fly Like Hummingbirds and One Gray Day You’ll Die

Love Turns to Crap Like a Sandwich

The Alley Cat and the Wounded Dog Share Scraps of Bird and Dung

Other, recent lists from McSweeney’s: J.D. Finch’s Downsized Works of Literature (including A Tale of a City) and Sam Thielman’s Judy Blume’s Lesser-Known Philosophy Texts (e.g., Blubber and Trembling, Starring Sally J. Freedman as the “Self”).
