I got this as an early reader copy a long time ago thinking it might be a nice change. After picking it up for the 10th time, I finally started getting into it. The book follows a druggie from New York to Guatemala to San Francisco, providing a tiny bit of insight into him and the people he encounters. I would have liked more insight into his thoughts and/or the other characters. It was a superficial glance at someone wasting his life. ( )

...this novel emphasizes the desperation, loneliness and warmth that human connections can bring.

This American road novel is authentic enough that you'll swear you can smell the smoke of the thousand cigarettes lit within.
