Imagined dilemmas

Keys To The Truculent Me contains 50 odd (as in “off-kilter,” not “he lost count after 50”) essays in which author John Branning dissects the most mundane of topics (among them: cats, toilet paper, the Kardashians) and finds something objectionable about nearly all. He himself is not above criticism, documenting it in this collection with scrupulous accuracy before eviscerating whomever launched the unjustified attack. Often petulant, frequently irritated, occasionally profane — but always funny — whether you share John’s viewpoints or not, you’ll alternate between laughing with and at him. Mostly at him.
