This is a novel you can't read just once. I finished "The Real Alice Cooper Wants To Be Famous" on a Monday night and the next night started in on page one again. It's addictive like that.
The second time around, you can open it up anywhere and just start reading. It's so engrossing, and the language is so flowing that, right away, you'll be caught up in the story again. You might be reading about flaky "Alice" herself . . . or the straightlaced Brother Gilroy . . . or the hugely-endowed Benjamin P. Cooper, CPA . . . or poor, tubby old Dottie Rosenthal . . . or wistful little Cathy Moriarity . . . or one of the two coolest monks you've ever met, Brother Zachary and Brother Brother . . . or a group of local townies who are unintentional comedians . . . or even a pair of Dobermans who smile and never bark. Whichever character you chance upon, it's like meeting an old friend -- and hearing them talk to you in their own distinctive voices.
"The Real Alice Cooper" is a genuine trip because it pulls you in and it doesn't let you go. You get wrapped up in all the people who pop in and out of the book and you find yourself enthralled. Just as amazing, the novel doesn't insult your intelligence. The action is always logical and plausible. The same with the characters: Even when two women take up with the same lunatic man, one after the other, it's somehow so inevitable that you know this is why they say life imitates art.
It's a terrific book and a great experience. After you read it, you'll feel a little more alive and a lot more appreciative of what you have.

More addictive than espresso...
A novel you won't put down until the final page, and one that you will surely pick up again and again.
The writing, the language, the often sarcastic and witty interactions amongst characters makes this novel one of the best I have read in years. It will keep you coming back for more.

If you love to read, there are (if you're lucky) a few books that stay with you for your whole life. In my case, I have been fortunate to have found "The Old Man And The Sea", "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas" and "A Confederacy of Dunces." All of these have been given by me as gifts to people whom I care about. Other books have been recommended, but none like these.

And now, at this late stage of my life, I have now found a book which goes on that list (in no particular order).

"The Real Alice Cooper Wants To Be Famous" is now on that short list. Sure, there are many other books I've enjoyed reading over my lifetime, but this one is in a special class.

From the first couple of pages, the story and its incredible characters grab you and hold you tight until the last word, at which point your only thought is that it should have been twice the length.

Rarely will you read a book which tells a story of relationships this well. Alice Cooper is a character you'll never forget and one you will wish you could have known in your own life. Having said that, this book is filled with such characters. Their interactions are beautifully portrayed and as you move on reading, they endear themselves to you. There are parts of this book that will have you laughing uproariously. A couple of the scenes involving Trooper Hymen of the Maryland State Police had me laughing to the point of tears. A couple of these scenes are good literature's answer to a human version of Wile E. Coyote. Even the pair of grinning Dobermans, Peter and Paul, are right up there with the most lovable dogs you've ever known. (In fact, my sister once had a Doberman who smiled at me EXACTLY as Peter and Paul are described.

Bought this out of curiosity - being a mad Alice Cooper fan and all - and was pleasantly surprised. It was long but I couldn't put it down! The only thing that got on my nerves was the use of characters full names and occupations repeatedly. However, the twists and turns kept you guessing. An enjoyable 'veg out' read.
