it was amazing
Read in February, 2009

This is a white-hot fury of a book. Hilarious and infuriating at the same time, how do you not fall in love with Sally Jay Gorce? It's impossible to overstate how fresh and original this story reads, and I found myself laughing at one line after another. It's like discovering that your favorite comic actually lived fifty years ago, and decimated more sacred cows than you'd ever known existed. Why do I always think the 50s were more tame than they actually were?
