Read in September, 2007

An insider's account of the astonishing exploits of Buckaroo Banzai and the Hong Kong Cavaliers, who when not being the hardest-rocking syncopated music in Texas or performing life-saving brain surgery, must save the world from the sinister machinations of the shock-addicted Red Lectroids from planet 10 and thwart the Lectroid leader John Whorfin's attempt to steal the Banzai Institute's OSCILLATION OVERTHRUSTER to escape earth to the 8th dimension and retrieve his murderous Lectroid army. Covers the same storyline as the film but in greater detail and with all the subtleties of fine prose. A classic, peppered with such unforgettable dialogue as "Careful, my Lord Whorfin! He means to eat your brains!" You should read this book if you have not lost your spirit of adventure.
