Good success, Mr. Gorsky, the 1st novel by means of 3-time Emmy Award profitable comic Dave Konig, is The Bowery Boys on velocity within the wild, wild West facet of latest York urban of the early Nineteen Eighties; reasonable single-room occupancy lodges, crime, and instances sq. sleaze. A extra blameless time.
Three teenage runaways - naive Danny Fisher, highway savvy Bobby Boyd, and Bobby's delusional artist brother James Boyd - shape a wildly dysfunctional familial bond. They dream, plot, and scheme to flee their misfit international via crime (a poorly deliberate theft of worthwhile comedian books), artwork (James is confident his unsuccessful occupation as a graffiti artist will propel him to Hollywood fame), and a bit aid from a clown's vehicle choked with deposed Ping-Pong champions, fats junkies, washed-up boxers, midgets, getting older Nazis, and enigmatic motion picture stars.
Sort of like an city Lord of the Flies - yet with larger jokes.
Good good fortune, Mr. Gorsky is, fairly in all likelihood, the nice American Novel.
