"Sometimes stories that I've used to mythologize my childhood resurface in my mind as actual memories... Perhaps if you tell a story enough times, it will become the truth."

This admission by Mark Greensleeves, in 'Some Facts About Me', sums up Frank Burtonís sharp, surreal and subversive short story collection, A History of Sarcasm.

The seventeen stories in this collection blur the boundaries between fact and fantasy through a series of obsessive characters and their skewed versions of reality.

Among them are a man who insists on living every aspect of his life in alphabetical order, a girl who believes she is receiving secret messages through the TV, a paranoiac who is pursued by an army of giant lobsters, and an academic werecat.
