  • I’m Fine???And Other Lies

    Well, well, well. Look at you, ogling my book page. . . . I presume if you’re reading this it means you either need more encouragement to buy it, you’re very bored in an airport, or we used to date and you’re trying to figure out if you should sue me or not.,Here are all the stories and mistakes I’ve made that were way too embarrassing to tell on stage in front of an actual audience; but thanks to not-so-modern technology, you can read about them here so I don’t have to risk having your judgmental eye contact crush my self-esteem. This book contains some delicious schadenfreude in which I recall such humiliating debacles as breaking my shoulder while trying to impress a guy, coming very close to spending my life in a Guatemalan prison, and having my lacerated ear sewn back on by a deaf guy after losing it in a torrid love affair. In addition to hoarding mortifying situations that’ll make you feel way better about your choices, I’ve also accumulated a lot of knowledge from therapists, psychotherapists, and psychopaths, which can probably help you avoid making the same mistakes I’ve made. Think of this book as everything you’d want from the Internet all in one place, except without the constant distractions of ads, online shopping, and porn.,I’m not sure what else to say to say, except that you should buy it if you want to laugh and learn how to stop being crazy. If you’re bored at an airport, I’m sorry and welcome to most days of my life on the road. And if we used to date, see you in court.

  • The Iron Will of Shoeshine Cats

    From the author of the short fiction collection , comes a vibrant, hilarious addition to the genre of mob tragicomedy. Twenty-year-old Russell Newhouse, a quick-witted scholar and skirt-chaser, has New York???s organized crime scene thrust upon him by a man called Shushan ???Shoeshine??? Cats, who interrupts a meeting of a Brooklyn Jewish men???s society where Russell is serving as secretary. Shushan is in need of a favor and promptly takes Russell under his wing. What ensues is a classic boy-meets-mob story: part noir, part comedy, part epic. Kestin???s richly layered characters???a monstrously obese German organized crime attorney named Frit von Zeppelin, a Jewish Texan who speaks in malapropisms, a dentist who anglicizes or Yiddishizes his name depending on his mood???are straight out of Dickens; his vivid attention to the details of place, New York, and time, 1963, is like poetic journalism; and his snappy, concise prose and dialogue is on par with Raymond Chandler. Kestin zips through Russell???s sexual trysts, dealings in back rooms of Little Italy restaurants, and encounters with historical events like the JFK assassination with unflagging humor and insight.
