SLEEVE NOTES:
“Edison’s book is so funny and smart and delightfully filthy that I wish I had written it myself.” — Al Goldstein, founder of Screw magazine

“This book is beyond blurbs, so let’s just get to the jack. If you have any interest in pot, pornography, punk rock, or professional wrestling, just buy this fucking thing. Much more important than food for the table or the starving children of wherever. ” – Nick Tosches

“A laugh-a-minute joyride through the back alleys of pre-internet sleaze culture.” – Daniel Clowes, author of Ghost World

“Half the time I spent reading this laugh-out-loud saga of depravity and mayhem, I found myself wishing I’d lived this life; the other half, I was thanking sweet heaven I didn’t. In a world where many would-be rebels (myself included) would like to consider themselves or their work ‘anti-establishment’ or ‘punk rock,’ Mike Edison hasn’t just talked the talk, he’s walked the walk. May God have mercy on his soul.” – Todd Hanson, writer and editor, The Onion

“Half-intellectual, half-media whore, (and all-man), Mike Edison takes you on the last roller coaster ride through the American counter-culture. Buckle up for a fabulous read.” – Josh Alan Friedman, author of Tales of Times Square
