The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy

Most of my readers probably know who Tim Burton is. If not he is the genius behind such amazing films as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice to name a few. What you probably didn’t know is that he is also an author. A couple years back he put out a book called “The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories” which a friend found for me about a year ago. The stories and poems are all quite weird, which is expected from someone like Tim Burton.
Today I was trolling the web for interest and stumbled across the title story. Thus I present to you “The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy“. The humour is quite twisted but in an enjoyable way 🙂

    Tim Burton’s films are too depressing for my taste, but I enjoyed reading that Oyster Boy story. Thanks for sharing it! 🙂
