Anyways, the book's about this guy whose dad is a foreman, so he's rich, and he doesn't know what he wants to do. He hears these great bands play so he thinks he wants to do music, and he follows that dream for a while, stops, starts again, meets geniuses he can't possibly measure up to, tries to get back on the straight and narrow, stops again, almost dies multiple times, starts carrying a gun around and wearing a dramatic scarf to look like a bandit, and, in the end, gets just barely that little bit calmer.
The book is imbued with the South, and there are countless good turns of phrase in it. I had someone loan me this book after I told them how much I idolized DFW for a month or so, and Hannah isn't DFW, but that's not the worst thing ever. [All writers are themselves ... hooray!] In the end, I enjoyed this a lot more than Catcher in the Rye - it's more realistic, and Hannah is more lyrical than Salinger [IMHO]. I have to say, though, that it was very reminiscent of that book ... if I hadn't read that first I would probably have a much higher opinion of this.
Worth a read, if nothing else. The fiction that nobody reads ... if this book is any indication, it's somewhat depressing that his stuff isn't more widely read. He died on March 1st, people! Everyone should be snapping up his works like hotcakes now![I didn't know he'd died until ... right now, actually. Go wikipedia.] Read it, you won't regret it.

Barry Hannah is one of the best story tellers that I have ever read. AMAZON has a great selection of books.Published on August 2, 2013 by Mikky
The descriptions and phrasings and writing were great. The story line was boring. What was the point??? Trying to recapture Catcher in The Rye? Read morePublished on July 5, 2010 by Dr. Thorn
Hannah is a musician and a whizz-bang conductor. He writes sentences and paragraphs of the highest order. Read morePublished on April 24, 2009 by Elaine McClain
