really liked it

If you're looking to be thoroughly depressed by the actions (and inactions) of an Irish-American loser, then this is the book for you. Otherwise, you should wait until I publish my own autobiography. Thank you.

J I am about 70% done. In its simplicity it is quite tragic, and a little comical, but mostly tragic, but in his simple way Farrell touches on many of the hardships of life. Also, it is quite revealing how the political climate way back then seems all too much like the one we live in now.
