  1. I have read this book 4 times now and I love it every time I first noticed it because of the title, John Steinbeck was my first favorite author and still is amoung my favorites This book is nothing like Of Mice and Men and I am completely thrilled with that This is about a man, a son, brother, and boyfriend On the surface it is about a visit to his sister s home and her husband and children Deeper it is about a man learning who he really is and what he wants This is one of the few books I can re [...]


  2. At what should be the most stable and happiest time of his life, Mishka Shubaly is still learning from his tumultuous past and coping with life An alcoholic now 5 years sober , the child of divorced parents, and a man who has lost too many friends to drugs and violence, Mishka is determined to save a tiny, seemingly meaningless life in the form of a baby mouse he names Mishkalito What Mishkalito represents, however, is far than a mere mouse as Mishka uses this time to reflect on his past and his [...]


  3. Mishka Shubaly is a talented writer I ve read all of his singles and this is one of my favorites I was emotionally drawn in to Mishkalito s struggle for survival Shubaly s writing style is fluid and entertaining, full of great wit and subtle ironies that highlight his proto hipster origins He was a Brooklynite before Williamsburg was gentrified In the story, Mishkalito s struggle for existence mirrors Mishka s the man emotional development as he matures in his mid thirties and questions what pos [...]


  4. Is this a riff on Hemingway Not really This is a short story so than a novel It is about a delayed coming of age The central character is an reformed alcoholic drug addict who s been drifting through life with very little acceptance of responsibility It takes nursing a tiny newborn mouse which was almost killed by his sister s dogs to bring him to some basic realizations about himself, his upbringing, his relationships, and his fear of moving on in life Taking on the care and support of a helple [...]


  5. I ll start by saying that I ve been a fan of Shubaly s work ever since reading Shipwrecked, and since then I ve read everything he s put out He is a writer who can pull off a trick which is beyond many non fiction writers that of being introspective without being mawkish, of examining his own life in a way that s compelling to the everyman reader His, too, is the kind of snappy writing that grabs your attention and doesn t let go once you ve started, there s nothing for it but to devour the rest [...]


  6. Like Steinbeck s fictional masterpiece, Shubaly s short non fiction memoir opens with the protagonist foraging through the brush But there the similarity ends Shubaly is no Lennie, or George for that matter And the mouse that he metaphorically pockets becomes a symbol of hope rather than an impending death.There s not a word out of place in this beautiful tale of possibility and hope There s redemption of a sorts too It s the redemption that Shubaly is oftentimes reluctant to grant himself for h [...]
