A Great Read,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Jack Tripper Stole My Dog (Paperback)
If you are into tales that lean toward the seedier side, this is a book for you. Paul McGuire is like a new age Charles Bukowski, mixed with some Hunter S. Thompson and contemporary writers like Irvine Welsh and/or Chuck Palahniuk mixed in for good measure.
The book is about Russian-born, Brooklyn immigrant Ivan and his messed up life. Without giving away too much, McGuire blends Ivan's life with chapters about the people Ivan meets as a cab and limo driver in NYC. The book takes place in 2002, just after 9/11, which adds some color and context to the story.
I couldn't put this book down and finished it in a few days. Enjoy!
