He also happens to be a vampire.
Bottomfeeder isn't a traditional vampire yarn. Our hero doesn't spend his time pondering his love for humanity or other vampires, or battling ancient evil. He goes to work, keeps his true nature hidden from people, and when he's not hunting muggers and murderers, spends his time cooped up in an apartment surrounded by books and movies.
Doesn't sound special, but Bottomfeeder is darkly witty and Bob Fingerman paints a picture of New York as a grimy metropolis with a seedy supernatural underbelly, to which we're gradually introduced as Phil begins to discover more about his condition.
If Chuck Palahniuk and Bret Easton Ellis wrote a vampire novel, they'd write Bottomfeeder.
It's a brilliant debut from a fantastic writer who really needs to get another book or ten on the shelves. Particularly recommended for anyone put off the genre after reading an Anne Rice vampire porn story.

The descriptions of people and places in this novel are detailed and graphic, without ever slowing down the pace of the narrative. The characters are vividly and economically drawn. New York comes alive. If prose can be hip, gross, and lyrical at the same time, Fingerman's nailed it. You can expect a laugh and a cringe on every page.
Fingerman is a very gifted writer, and this is an impressive debut novel. At the end of the "acknowledgements" section of the book Fingerman writes, "stay tuned," and I will. Looking forward to the next one!
