HARLEY LOCO: A Memoir of Hard Living, Hair, and Post-Punk from the Middle East to the Lower East Side

Endorsed by the author's friend, Elizabeth Gilbert, who says: "Her writing doesn't come out on the page feeling like it's been squeezed from the standard-issue literary toothpaste tube."

That's exactly what I loved about it, but for some readers, the frankly appalling anecdotes about the author's hardscrabble drug adventures will be too much. Gritty and depressing at times, hilarious and free-spirited at others. If you make it through the first 30 pages, you'll probably love it.

We'd like to receive money via an offshore bank account, but that hasn't happened yet. When my dad was in radio back in the '50s, a local baker used to sneak over in the dead of night and fill the back seat of his car with bread and pastries. We would NOT object to this. Please review our review policy here. And let us know if we should leave the car outside the garage tonight.
