"It is true to say that One Crazy Day is enormously entertaining. Jeff Frye is just a middle-class guy who decided to annihilate himself."
- UV Ray
"I will never rob a bank but he makes me wish I was the getaway driver."
- Becky Westbrook
"Jeffrey Frye writes life as he experiences life. There is nothing masked or sugar-coated. His "real" is reality, whether glamorous or seedy."
- Alexius Rex
"Like the other two great F's of American confessional literature, John and Dan Fante, Jeffrey Frye writes stories that are insightful, heartfelt and witty."
- Rasmus Drews
From the Author
I'm doing a 20 year stretch for liberating federally insured money. My neighbors include dope dealers and also gun-runners, kingpins, spies, hit men, mobsters, and a few bank robbers. There are child molesters and rapists too but they can't live in general population at this custody level (high) because The Pack will kill them. We may be criminals but we all have mothers, sisters, and daughters, and we aren't about to let someone who harms them come back here and live comfortably...
Prison is a state of mind. It could be worse. I could still be married. I'll take living with my present cellmate over my former soulmate any day of the week. It's only prison. But, yes, prison sucks. A lot. Luckily, though, I'm built Ford Tough... and most days are laid back and I'm cooking, writing, and although there's violence, it doesn't involve me. It's not that I'm some kind of Billy Badass as much as it is how I carry myself and treat others. The monkey knows the tree to climb and they don't climb this one.

Wanted to give it five stars, because the writing is that good...but the dang thing is way too short. Ends too soon. I hope his publisher
knows how to take a hint.
Good writing should be encouraged...and this is what we're doing here. Way too often hacks get praised, and guys like Mr. Frye get overlooked.
The man has talent. My humble opinion.
Frye documents a decadent account of his delinquency. He is witty, funny and crazy. He admits to his drug addiction and the fact that he has the self-Gnosis of being "not-sane". Yet, he completes complicated tasks like staking out, research, reconnaissance, bank robbery without violence or weapons, escape, making new friends, being kind to people (even strangers and shaggy street dogs), "dating" an ex-girlfriend over disposable phones, keeping up the appearances with old friends and casual sex. If you study him, you would probably befriend him. He is cool. Bad but cool. Criminal but not "evil". I hope things improve for him and that he stays safe in prisons where death visits randomly without notice nor cause. I hope to read more of his adventures in his Bank Robber's Blog. This is not a celebration of crime in any way. It is just one day in the life of one man. In these crazy days, this is actually entertaining. Wall Street pigs get a bonus. Frye gets 20 years in USP. If you liked the recent hit movie "The Wolf of Wall-Street", have a look at the other end of the banking career. This is Gonzo Journalism revisited.
