The essay about Larry King ("Dependents")is one of the most enjoyable pieces of journalism I have read in a long, long time. The others weren't too shabby either! Fun characters, engaging writing style, and no particular theme holding them together, which is perfect when you are feeling sort of non-commital when picking a next book to read. Highly recommended! Also, an interesting perspective on the Grateful Dead, even for people who actively disdain the Grateful Dead (really!).
