Reader's Diary #2066- Ian Couch: Asshole Island


With a title like "Asshole Island," you might assume this short story by Ian Couch has a Chuck Palahniuk/ Bret Easton Ellis sort of vibe. You'd be right.

It's about an uninhabited island of Vanuatu where people are sent as punishment for being "assholes." Not criminals necessarily, just jerks, and the narrator is one of them. It's amusing, though I suspect only tolerable in this very short form.
