This guy rocks the hell out of his stories. Wringing the words out onto the page, you feel his rage, his pain. He has a gift that would have fit in with any of the beats and even more so as a continuation of his father's work. A different generation sure, but he has tapped into the mainline of what it means to be a down on your luck writer struggling with inner demons as well as various drug and alcohol problems. Genius. He riffs like a bebop horn player. Kerouac would have loved this writer.
