Let's get one thing straight before getting into this book. Assume nothing.
'At Last There Is Nothing Left To Say' is a collection of varied manifestos and short stories penned by Canadian musician (and now author) Matthew Good. The stories follow no direct path and wander all over the place, but always for the better and more thought-provoking. Good has an obvious talent for exposing the difficult, bitter truths in our everyday lives, and does so in the various stories throughout. And on top of that, many of the stories will actually make you laugh (and probably cry), if not from the story itself then from the grim reality of all that Good throws at you. From the thoughts of an opium-riddled traveller to the media's exploitation of a so-called 'miracle kid,' Good conveys tons of intelligent and quirky ideas within the 170+ pages of his book.
Be warned, though, that this isn't a read for everyone. While Matt does an excellent job of writing the book, you have to be kinda-sorta already initiated with his prior works (and by that I mean his amazing music). If you've never listened to a Matthew Good album or know nothing of Matt in general, then you'll probably be caught a bit off-guard with this particular piece of print. But for fans of Matt who haven't already read this, go crazy! I find it interesting that many of the things mentioned in 'At Last...' have now made it into Matt's actual song lyrics. It's kind of like a little bonus if you've read the book, and then hear the lyrics later on in a song. ("Hey! I know he means in that line!")
Overall, 'At Last There Is Nothing Left To Say' ranks as one of my favorite books ever. If only for the grim portrait of our day-and-age that Matt paints. I could go on and on praising this book, but I'll leave it up to you to read it and draw your own conclusions. That's the beauty of opinion, isn't it?
And with that, I'm out.

Format: Paperback
At Last There is Nothing Left to Say is Matthew Good's (of The Matthew Good Band fame) first, and perhaps last, foray into the world of the written word. At Last There is Nothing Left to Say is not a complete novel, nor a series of novella, but rather, a collection of short 1-10 page stories of fictious accounts of Matthew's life and narratives of events in the lives of a host of characters. The novel is layed out in an interesting, dual-story fashion, where one will find major stories taking up 3/4 of the page, and smaller stories taking up 1/4 of the page. The smaller stories are more like manifestoes than short works of fiction, which give some insight into Matthew's delightfully twisted and cynical world view.
At Last There is Nothing Left to Say is not one solid, cohesive work, and it doesn't have a unifying central theme. Instead it makes a few statements on society, on the environment of the mind, and the dysfunctions of people. At Last There is Nothing Left to Say is an entertaining read that offers morbid and twisted insight into the minds of teenagers, rock stars, and sociopaths. And while it doesn't have all that much to say, it still manages to say alot.

Format: Paperback
Matthew Good, leader of Canada's most notorious rock band, has finally released a book of his manifestos (some of which are on his website) - much to the disdain of critics everywhere. In fact, this book proudly displays particularly negative snippets from reviewers on its back cover.
Why do critics rate it so harshly? Well, I would assume because it is, without a doubt, possibly the most insane thing I've ever read. When you're reading stories about rabbits that live in your head, a girl drowning in Cherry Jell-O, unwillingly partaking in a kidnapping with a man named Slappy Mutt Mutt, and titles such as, "Porno Safari", "Some men get the world. Others get ex-hookers and a trip to Arizona", and "How Come There's Never Been a Weapon of Mass Destruction on a Wheaties Box?", you know you're dealing with something slightly off the deep end. However, it is my opinion that it is as brilliant as it is crazy. Each story, though often very abstract, and usually very disturbing, are very meaningful, filled with witty and sarcastic jabs at society. Very true jabs, I might add.
Needless to say this book isn't for everyone... It's for people who enjoy satire, abstract ideas, and random insanity. And, well, to be somewhat more general, it's for fans of the band (although even non-fans could enjoy it, I would imagine). If you're at all a fan of Matt Good, definately pick this up. If you're not, but enjoy this kinda thing, then it's probably worth it as well.

Format: Paperback
"At Last There is Nothing Left to Say," by Matthew Good-- ex-lead singer of Canada's (now dispersed) biggest alternative-rock band, the Matthew Good Band-- is a collection of manifestos scripted by him over several years. The work is geared for a rather personal audience, perhaps only those who are fans of Matthew Good or the band-- they are the ones most likely to understand the origin of most of the book's contents. A fan myself, I am inclined to rate this publication as being top of the line, as well as one of a kind; however, those who are not familiar with Matthew Good might not concur.
"[Truth,] the greatest of all fantasy words, dependent entirely on perspective. Now I'm sure there are remnants of the truth left out there, those things that make everyone's stomach turn so much that they've just got to be wrong, or right, or justifiable. But for the most part truth is perspective. Despite what you've read or been told most of your life there are not two sides to every story." (Good 72).
Good's collection is a wild mix of just that: truth expressed in perspective. This creates an ultimately insane element of fiction, within several tales possessing the slightest bit of truth. Having said that, it should be easily understood when I say that he keeps you guessing with every turn of a page. Is he crazy? Maybe, but then, fact and fiction are crafted with such wit here that we may never know.
