I'd never heard of this fellow. Turns out he has a bit of a cult following. This is a book of personal essays and while I found his writing to be really refreshing, I was vaguely uncomfortable by most of his subject matter. Meth, homelessness, suicide, etc. Maybe being uncomfortable by writing is a good thing or maybe I just don't want to read about this stuff in my "off-time" since it's all a part of my "on-time". That it took me less than a day to read this book says something, I suppose.

Either way I will likely read more of his writing. Reminds me of Bukowski.
