This author seeks to find patterns in the chaos, and instill sympathy in the reader for the odd and outrageous tragic characters in his stories. There is definitely a Kerouac-like sadness in the narration. There is an almost physiological connection between the Beat writers and Rob Simons. Simons is most successful at bringing darkness to the light. This book is a must read for anyone who likes to delve into the shadows.
