feeling tired and worn-out, paul kemp eeks out a living at the san juan news; a failing paper in Puerto Rico. trying to make sense of his place in life, kemp soaks his pain in rum and sometimes writes.

a very easy read (as is much of Thompson's work) and highly entertaining with an ending so open it leaves you wanting to read ALL of his books in chronological order.
