Trying to be hip, but just comes out lame. This is really a terrible book. ( )

An excellent example of great creativity but not necessarily something that works for everyone. It is like eating ice cream instead of a balanced meal. Leyner is almost like Robin Williams. He goes off on these great tangents that show amazing knowledge and creativity. However, this is not something that I would read on a constant basis. Not even sure that I would another book by him but he is out there!! ( )

One of the greatest books ever written. Everyone uses sentences. Here they are re-defined. It's a mind expanding piece of lit if ever I saw one. I got copies for my friends. Brilliant! ( )

An autobiographical fiction about the superpowerful author and his bizarre adventures in his twisted version of current culture. Like spending an afternoon in an asylum then realizing the inmates are saner than you. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679745068, Paperback)

In this fiendishly original new novel, Mark Leyner is a leather-blazer-wearing, Piranha 793-driving, narcotic-guzzling monster who has potential rivals eliminated by his bionically enhanced bodyguards, has his internal organs tattooed, and eavesdrops on the erotic fantasies of Victoria's Secret models -- which naturally revolve around him.

Leyner's jet-propelled roller derby through the cultures of celebrity, cyberpunk, and rabid egotism is exhilaratingly bizarre, exhaustingly funny -- and you'd better hope it's just fiction.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:03:36 -0400)

(see all 2 descriptions)

This uneven but often hilarious satire is based on the premise that the great success of the author's first novel and his irresistible, steroid-enhanced physique have catapulted him to intergalactic stardom.
