This book tells it like it is for one boy in downtown America when the world is against you, and folks just don't seem to care. Experience fifteen year old Vernon's thoughts, straight from head to page, unadulterated. A brilliant, gripping, cynical, black, funny satire on contemporary American life and values.
It tells you normal times just ran howling from town. Probably forever. God knows I tried my best to learn the ways of this world, even had inklings we could be glorious; but after all that's happened, the inkles ain't easy anymore. I mean - what kind of fucken life is this?
