Book Description

Jack Tripper Stole My Dog is a comedic, existentialist novel by Paul McGuire. It's a journey about Ivan, a Russian-born taxi driver from Brooklyn and how he mismanaged the triumvirate of women in his life: his wife, his daughter, and his lover. His struggles are not much like your own -- his life included a long history of lying, cheating, gossiping, infidelity, hijinks, incest, war, John Lennon murder conspiracies, suicide attempts, a bizarre and sick love triangle, turmoil, redemption, personal reflection, torture, murder, revenge and more redemption. The characters are a mixture of scorned lovers, psycho stalkers, literate pugnacious lesbians, Bill Gates, serial killers, the KGB, canine tossing, an Ecstasy-popping Hollywood director, a drug-peddling Mossad Agent, trans-gender pornogrpahy, date rapists, the Russian mafia, nefarious hippie bands, more junkies and drunks that you can shake a stick at, trick-turning Catholic high school girls, Jesus Freaks, swinging Upper East Side housewives, Internet disinformation, a trannie hot dog vendor, a heroin-smuggling minister, and of course, the CIA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Dark & Dirty City Heard From June 14, 2011
If you love New York City, you will love Jack Tripper Stole My Dog. If you hate New York City, you will love Jack Tripper Stole My Dog. But NYC is just the gritty backdrop to a truly fascinating collection of character studies from the dirty underside of life. Much like his previous novel "Lost Vegas," Pauly has spent far too much time with these cranked up characters, which means we get to see and hear them in all their gory glory. Who knows what the experience does to the author but we can reap the benefits without actually touching the disease. Well worth the read. I wonder which city comes next on the Paul McGuire Hit Parade?

Talk about deviant...Ivan is one messed up dude who you can't help but love...and pity at the same time. A real fun, fast paced read about NYC in 2002 from the eyes of a Russian taxi driver who has seen and done it all. Well written and funny, sad, exciting, depressing...and that's on every page.

2.0 out of 5 stars Like Being Cornered on a Subway Car by Crazy People November 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A book-length telling of the Aristocrats joke, interspersed with the lengthy ramblings of a late-night subway car filled with crazy people. Whether you like the book probably depends on how appealing this description sounds.
