"Not a word comes out that one would correct . . . it is sublime."--Gérard Guégan
From the Back Cover
A blackout brought on by a Mad Dog binge that ended with a self-inflicted steak knife wound bought Bruno Dante another stint in the nuthouse, no different from all the rest. Now it's done, and his wife, Agnes--taking time off from her personal-trainer lover--has come to pick Bruno up and to deliver a message from the West Coast: his screenwriter father is in the hospital in a coma and is not expected to live. So Bruno heads back to Los Angeles for a fraught family reunion, where the tension and stress force him to dull the pain the only way he knows how--with alcohol. And when he wakes up naked in a stolen car with an underage hooker whose pimp has stolen his wallet, Bruno realizes the trip has just begun.

It is a fairly quick read, but every page is dripping in alcohol-charged misery and ramblings of the main character, Bruno, who has just learnt his dad is dying.
This grabs you from the very beginning and you really feel for Bruno and his poor little furry companion as they travel around in Bruno's brother's car they have stolen.
Dark, melancholy, humorous - you will not be disappointed. This is a fantastic book.
