Storyline

The narrator, "Barjo" (nutcase, crap artist), is an obsessive simpleton, given to filling his notebook with verbatim dialog, observed trivia, and oddball speculation on human behavior and the end of the world. When his house burns, he moves in with his twin sister, Fanfan -- an impulsive, quixotic egoist -- and her husband, Charles, the Aluminum King. Charles becomes the focus of the film, as his wife and brother-in-law bewilder him. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

i'm not sure if it is better to read the book or see the movie. but they surely are completely different experiences. the movie will taint your imaginings while reading the book.. but. i don't know. i just kinda like the movie. if you can handle some weirdness and are amused by random things. why not?
