From the back cover:

"Here is the sensation of the season, the book that hit nearly every 'ten best' list in this nation. It is the unforgettable story of a con-man and his kid; of a father who lied about everything but love; of a lonely man who conned his way through life, around the world, and forever into the heart of his son."

This book promised a lot and delivered little. The story just didn't capture me at all. The author has a splendid beard though.

Picked this up at the York Bookcrossing meetup. THE DUKE!!!!

Released 10 yrs ago (10/22/2013 UTC) at Monthly BookCrossing Meet Up in York in York, North Yorkshire United Kingdom

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I rather enjoyed this - Wolff is on good form when talking about his father, but it gets a bit duller when he's talking about himself.

To be released at the York monthly Bookcrossing meetup.

Journal Entry 10 by davidbreslin101 at York, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Saturday, December 16, 2017
This was a LOT better than I expected. Wolff's biography of his flamboyant blagger of a dad ranges from incidents of breathtaking audicity to a painful, self-inflicted downfall. And it's interesting to see the effect such a role model/object lesson had on his son.

Released 6 yrs ago (12/18/2017 UTC) at Brigantes Bar & Brasserie OBCZ / Meetup Venue in York, North Yorkshire United Kingdom

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

To be released at the York Bookcrossing Meetup.

Well, it's probably about time that I checked this out myself - given that I put it into BookCrossing in the first place...

Journal Entry 13 by TheGreenMan at York, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Sunday, May 26, 2024
Since I've gone off the prospect of reading this, rather than hang onto it any longer, I am releasing it back into the wonderful world of BookCrossing. I'm planning to release it at this Tuesday evening's BC Meetup - which is being held at The Eagle & Child in York from 7.15pm onwards...
