bear parade

the living and the dead
by noah cicero

this is the seventh book in the bear parade series. a novel published in two installments.

written with help from bernice mullins, norman mailer, richard wright, sinclair lewis, che guevara, and george w. bush.

noah cicero is from youngstown, oh.

buy noah's other books:





the fact that the crosses were not upside down and didn't have smiley faces completely ruined the book for me.

like a lot of shitty redemptive stories about poor people, this story includes sexual deviance.

unlike them, there's actually a point.

and zombies.

therefore it is much better.

Wow, I accidently just watched a really good zombie my head. I love it when I forget I'm reading.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is another thing all together. A friend told me to read it, that I'd lurv it, but I don't, and I don't feel bad for it. I can see words when I read that book, much unlike Cicero's novel about zombies reminding me of asshole Orwell pigs.

More zombies and they should sing. You should make a zombie named Billy who makes it on American Idol. Zombie Billy will be judged by Zombie Simon and Zombie Paula Abdul. The other judge has decomposed.

On American Idol, Billy will get all the zombie votes, which will propel him to first place and a record deal with Zombie Records.

On his first record Billy will behave inappropriately by pissing on the microphone and decomposing. Afterwards, he will sing his first hit song, Baby Got No Back.

"Cuz I ate it," he will sing.

I'm glad Noah wrote this book. It is entertaining. I read some of the chapters twice because they were funny.

Good job to everyone involved.

I liked when the lynched children sang Britney Spears.

i think you used the word fuck (in various forms) 108 times.

i smiled when i read the last chapter.

This felt very powerful to me and also made me feel less like living in the united states.

This book makes me want to go to a crowded public place and shout "I'm going to cut off my penis."

I do not actually want to cut off my penis, I just want to say that.

I am not sure if this is a good thing. What have you done to me Noah Cicero?
