Overview

Jerome Tuccille's hilarious memoir about religious conflict and sexual adventurism has been described as a cross between J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye and J.P. Donleavy's The Ginger Man. Tuccille impresses the reader with his writing skills and his command of the English language. He has a great wit and a fine sense of style. His description is appropriately detailed and his imagery vivid and striking. He's excellent at blending narrative with exposition. I found myself quite involved in the exciting, emotional, and traumatic incidents in his book. I was unable to put it down until I had finished reading it. This doesn't happen often in the publishing field. The book is an eminently readable collection of yarns, covering the author's roots in the Bronx, his travels around the globe, and his various religious conversions and sexual misadventures. Tuccille is a talented storyteller, and he has a knack for bragging and mocking himself at the same time.
