As its subtitle ("The True Tale of a White Boy from Oakland Who Became a Drug Addict, Criminal, Mental Patient, and Then Turned 16") so perfectly states, the book tells of Kasher's early experiences with drugs, brushes with the law, and stints in and out of rehab. "Hysterical, heartbreaking, flat-out hilarious... after Kasher in the rye, Moshe Kasher will no longer be known just as a brilliant, cutting edge young comic, but as a genuine monster writer of the highest order. Think Holden Caulfield on dope and bagels, with a side of crime and insane asylums" -- Jerry Stahl.
