Extra copy. I knew it was on someone's wishlist, but couldn't find it through search, for some reason. Reserved for Firegirl. Media mail, 03/11/17.

I really quite liked this. I actually picked it for my (three member) book club to read and the other two participants both said how much they were enjoying it. I'll write a more extensive review once we've had out gathering to discuss it next month. Thank you for sharing!

My book group is just me and two other friends, but we all liked this. It's a crazy story of a crazy life, but we also all noted that it also showed that, no matter how different we may seem, we have the same basic issues, just manifested in different ways. (Not the drugs or alcohol, but relationships, self-esteem, etc.) Despite Josh and Jack's wild lifestyle, there were also the simple moments of "normal" life - reading the paper together, going to dinner, that kind of thing.

We talked about what, if anything, was exaggerated. The other two participants thought maybe some parts were embellished; it didn't occur to me to doubt anything at all.

We also discussed why these two came together. What was it about Josh that Jack was drawn to? Did he need someone to take care of? Had someone helped him in the past and he was looking to do the same? Did he need to have a relationship with someone who was just a little bit dependent on him?

Drugs and alcohol play a significant part in this and opened up for lots of talk on those subjects. What really drove Josh to get sober? Why did Jack become an addict?

I could go on; we found a great deal in this to talk about. An excellent read and a surprisingly good choice for a book club. Thanks again!
