Book Description

Edwin has reached the peak of indifference. At age thirty-six, he’s starting to take a serious look at his current status as a bartender, a boyfriend of four years, and a smoker. He dropped out of college at age twenty to follow his music...al dreams, only to have them shattered by a hazy night of drug use. Eleven years later, he finds himself working opposite hours with his girlfriend Zoey, who is forcefully trying to get him to quit smoking. Asked to play a one-off show with his former band Addison Street, Edwin is forced to address old emotions that he had long since tucked away. Despite his initial reluctance, this looming performance gives him a new perspective on his stagnant life. A youthful, more involved Edwin emerges from weeks full of band rehearsals and late nights of drinking and smoking. However, someone from his rock ‘n’ roll past returns, and he must decide whether or not his relationship with Zoey is worth opposite hours and constant nagging about his habit. After eighteen years, will Edwin end his longest relationship, with cigarettes, to save the one he has with Zoey?

5.0 out of 5 stars An honest and concise novel June 23, 2013
By pk
I was especially pleased with this novel. The characters were flawed and a bit rough, but really grew on me and were down-to-earth and actually quite likable. The subject matter was familiar for many of us in our 20s, 30s, 40s: music, sports, relationships, bars, restaurants, smoking, and drinking. Hoping for future literary pieces from Christian Knobloch!

5.0 out of 5 stars From Indifference to Redemption July 2, 2013

Despite Christian Knobloch's cynical tone, Nicotine Fingers is really a novel about rebirth. Edwin, his protagonist, is frustrated with his position in life. However, through a reunion with his old band mates, he discovers that life doesn't end at thirty-six. Funny and often painfully honest, Nicotine Fingers is a great, easy read for the summer months, especially during baseball season!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story and well written June 26, 2013
By andy
I really enjoyed this book and had fun reading it. It is one of those books that the more you read the better it gets. It is a great story about a man who was unsatisfied with his current situation and struggled to either accept it, or find the will to change it.

In this book author-Christian Knobloch- seems to be experimenting with a new literary technique. Nicotine Fingers is written in the first person yet at many times it feels like an autobiography of the main character-Edwin. Edwin is telling the story of his twenties and thirties, the story is written in the first person, however, the main character includes a lot of dates, the names of people and places, and details of events that affected his life. In many autobiographies the author orientates his/her life around external events. It is this aspect of autobiography that Christian Knobloch combines with the standard first person perspective to create a unique book. In this instance the external events are related to music and baseball. The main character frequently uses tour dates, album recordings of well known bands, and baseball games as benchmarks in his own life. As Edwin is telling his story he uses the readers knowledge of these events to provide insights into his own story.

Great literary technique, entertaining story, and some '90s nostalgia. Ground breaking stuff here. You will enjoy this book.
