The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories
The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories from 1997 is a wonderful, weird and bittersweet book of stories by Vili Flik hottie Tim Burton. The poem-like stories tend to be about characters who don’t fit in, but who keep trying to. The stories are quite tragic, but, in true Burtonbrilliance, they are also a bit funny and very beautiful. The stories are also accompanied by lovely little illustrations.
