This wonderful new video trailer for the novel Hush by Dave Kress reinterprets a saccharine pop number made popular by Herman’s Hermits and, later, the The Carpenters. I think Mr. David Lynch might appreciate the treatment.
More on Hush:
From the jacket:
“Let’s just write once and for all that I’m dumb and let it go at that. Okay?” So writes Suster Reanne Mone in Hush, one of two known members of the Church of God the Silence and sporadic freshman at Bristol County Community College. Beset by a series of personal travesties, the teenaged Reanne finds herself living destitute, drunk, and alone in her “heap of a K-Car” amidst the ramshackle, podunk village of Awnry, Mass. Spared from an early demise by her old chum, the mutable gamine Penny, Reanne finds salvation of sorts in the mystic washing machine tinker, Clloyd Shoop. To make sense of the harrowing events that both precede and follow her encounter with Shoop, Reanne pens this outrageous, sexualized, hilarious, and highly personal bible—Hush. In it, we trace not only Reanne’s struggles for personal redemption, but her effort to overcome both the limits of religion and the limits of language—of which all religion is made—to find a space in which the unsayable may, blessedly, remain unsaid.
Hush is available for $19.95 from Amazon.Com.
