James J. Murphy III’s THE NURSING HOME (L&J Publishing) is the worst book I have ever read. I mean that. I really do. I don’t say things like that lightly, and I’ve never said this about a book before. If I had to estimate, I’d say I’ve read close to 4,000 or so books in my life (and those aren’t Wilt Chamberlain-inflated numbers), and THE NURSING HOME is by far the worst. Hands down. It’s the nadir of narrative. The low watermark of literature. An inept and feckless effort. It’s truly, egregiously awful. Like TROLL 2 awful.
