ANGRY MANAGEMENT

 

Angry Management By Chris Crutcher



ANGRY MANAGEMENT by Chris Crutcher

 

Welcome to Mr. Nak’s Angry Management group where you’ll meet big Angus, disfigured Sarah, Montana the cheerleader gone goth, Matt Miller the WWJD and Marcus James the school’s token kid. Come and join the misfits, the victims, the heroes. You’ll fit right in.

 

Chris Crutcher’s Angry Management is raw, intense and powerful. The stories grab you by the heart and the throat and shake you like a rag doll. Crutcher wrenches and uplifts you as insecurity, anger, hate and prejudice carry you away alongside love, freedom, power and hope.

 

After I finished reading it, I dabbed my eyes, blew my nose and remembered to breathe again.
 

“If we could learn to like ourselves, even a little, maybe our cruelties and angers might melt away.” - John Steinbeck

"Forgiveness is the fragrance the Violet leaves on the heel that has crushed it."
 - Mark Twain

Lovely, teasery review. Love that you pulled those quotes in at the end, too.

I'll have to look for this one. I loved his book Deadline.

Deadline sounds like it should go on my TBR list.
