I'm just hoping this is a sign of much bigger things to come. I did get a bit distracted when I attempted to read the raving critical review of this grand novel in the S.I. Swimsuit Edition, as I was temporarily out of commission on Bay Watch.
Johnny Dirtbag will turn out to be the ultimate icon for the Farmville generation. Think of the tabloid headlines it will generate--especially the Lindsay Lohan sexcapades while she is under the influence of numerous nefarious substances. Kardashian doesn't even come close, and a fat bottom to boot. Hollywood has good reason to be nervous, and the elders in the Kosher Nostra are now shaking in their boots. "One dangerous book" it is.
I envision a trilogy here. This story is much too big for a single book. Anton better be prepared to become the next Leo Tolstoy. Who said reading didactic literature is dead in America?
