This was a quick read after reading Vlautin's newest book Don't Skip Out on Me. Both books definitely had many similarities, but I preferred Skip Out to Lean on Pete. Don't get me wrong, both books are fantastic - I love his analysis of loneliness and his focus on the down-and-out just trying to live their life - but Skip Out showed a more elevated writing style. I could see his growth as a writer in the newest book. It was an absolute pleasure meeting Mr. Vlautin when he was visiting a book store in Olympia, WA a few nights ago. I will definitely read the other books he's written.
