really liked it

Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down is a book that reads less like prose and more like poetry-slam. It's whiplash fast, driving you foreward before you even realize where you've been. It's part slang, part pop, part scatting, part minstrel and completely engaging. It doesn't make you think so much as slams you up against thoughts so fast you have to either take them on or die trying to fight them off.
