Book Review #91 - The Tiny Wife by Andrew Kaufman

A magical short novel from the author of All My Friends are Superheroes.A robber holds up a Canadian bank but instead of stealing money he takes from each person the item of most sentimental value.As time passes the loss of these items have a dramatic effect on the victims: one discovers God under her sofa, another is attacked by her lion tattoo when it comes to life, and the wife of our narrator starts to shrink.It is a remarkable short novella, a modern fable that is weird, uplifting and romantic all at the same time.

My Rating: 3.5/5 

I received this book from Netgalley. 

This book was weird to begin with, then it leaves you wanting more. 

This book had alot of depth to it, some of which I don't think I completely understood. 

It still had alot of entertaining aspects, like the tattoo of the lion coming to life and the lion chasing the woman around. 

This book is soon going to be a film.
