Seriously great essayist,
This review is from: Pulphead (Paperback)
This is a brilliant collection of essays. The last time I was this overjoyed at discovering a writer was reading David foster wallace's Consider the Lobster, another collection I'd recommend in a heartbeat.
There are a couple profiles here - one on Michael Jackson, the other on W.Axl Rose - that I thought were just stupendous. The account of his weekend at a christian rock festival is one of the funniest, and most moving things I've read in a long time. And his description of a night out with a reality TV star is awesome.
This is a fantastic, humane, funny and wise book by a writer whose future work I greatly look forward to.
