Return of the Dittos Review

Return of the Dittos

By Dale Andrew White


The author of "Moe Howard Died For Our Sins" returns with another collection of hilarious short stories. 



"Whether writing about the end of the world, terrorist swans, entering the afterlife or high school journalism, White entertains with clever asides, obvious (and some not-so-obvious) puns, and cultural and societal pokes. His stories combine satire, slapstick, innuendo, and outright silliness. All of it is punctuated with interesting, quirky characters." Seattle Post-Intelligencer 



"White has a wonderful talent for engaging the unexpected, and his quick turns are wild and fun." Book Review.com. 


"Some of his stories come across as being written in the classic style of Mark Twain and the British satirist Saki... Still others comes across with the raw, in-your-face humor worthy of Comedy Central." ReaderViews.com. 

"A unique assortment of stories, each as entertaining as the last, 'Return of the Dittos' is a collection that short fiction lovers must get." Midwest Book Review

***MY HONEST REVIEW OF RETURN OF THE DITTOS***

This is a montage of stories that had me laughing from start to finish. This author is gifted in conveying his brand of slapstick humor. From the wild and wacky story of Christopher Columbus applying for a grant, to the disgusting nose fetish, nothing was too weird to be made fun of. I felt like all the stories had a vintage feel to them, and there was a definite tone of pulling for the underdog.


It was a very enjoyable read and it brought me back to my childhood memories of stories that my back-of-the-woods grandfather would tell many years ago. I could read this collection over and over without ever tiring of it.
