This gem of a little book is filthy and weird and hilarious. Big parts of it read like a standard noir detective story with the downbeat PI being forced to take a job he does not want. However, the job our PI takes is to recover the alternative (and maybe magic) constitution of the United States and all the people that he meets along the way are all perverts and degenerates.
There is quite a sweet little love story winding through the book and some great characters but a couple of scenes in particular stick in the mind. As a couple of other reviewers have mentioned one involved Godzilla films and the other involves saline injections. Both had me reading out bits of the book to friends. I would very heartily recommend it.
