Let There Be Linda is one of the most hilarious, dark, twisted comedies I’ve ever read. The novel follows two estranged brothers—one is an accountant and one is a con-man talent agent—as they get wrapped up in LA’s San Fernando Valley during the hottest summer in Southern California history. Maybe it starts with a girl who claims she can bring dead people back to life. Maybe it starts with a bad bet on a racehorse. Maybe it’s the missing $75,000 a psychotic comedian cop decides to chase. Maybe that’s not even the half of it. I definitely recommend this book if you love Quentin Tarantino. This dynamic cast features characters that are rich and crazy in their own unique way, and how the story weaves together is priceless. If you want to laugh this summer—and you’re searching for some glorious gore—this book is for you. Look out for Chachi.
Recommend to: Readers who want to laugh, and those who don’t flinch away from a little horror and magical realism.
Favorite Quote: For all he knew, she was married now and not wearing her ring for, well, who the hell knew why she wouldn’t wear her ring. No, he decided, she couldn’t be married. Who would marry a woman that could raise the dead? Her relationships would never get past that little detail.
