I was afraid to read my son's memoir. I heard recently that authors who write their memoirs are self indulgent and full of lies. So, I decided to be like 50 Cent's grandmother who never listens to his rap music and always says she she loves it. But, curiosity finally got the best of me or else I decided reading it for myself was better than my imagination reading it. Slash Coleman's book "The Bohemian Love Diaries," made me laugh, cry, and say "Amen" a few times. Yes, this is also my life through my child's eyes and I am grateful for his forgiveness. Anyone who has wondered what a family is like that lives with addictions, drama, crisis, mistakes, love and family values might want to join our family for a holiday dinner and please bring a copy of the book with you.Was this review helpful?

Slash's biographical search for love in The Bohemian Love Diaries compares to a spiritual, "chemical-free", organic rendition of Hunter R.Thompson with lessons learned in the end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The first chapter had me laughing out loud.. wanting more. What a wonderful book it was funny and profound.
Full of all the entertainment we would expect from a Memoir by Slash. Can not wait for the next book.

" It's seven minutes after midnight, and I'm standing in a silver shopping cart with a bad wheel in
Harvey's Meat Market and Grocery facing a Standoff Sandwich."
With those opening lines, I knew this memoir was going to be totally different from the other memoirs I have read. It's a barrel full of crazy.Coleman writes in such a way that I felt I was reading a Dali painting. If you like your biographies on the quirky side then you'll enjoy this book. It's one of the most original, entertainingly weird books I've read in a long time.

Everyone has a story, but how you tell that story is what will be the deciding factor that shines a spotlight upon the past you. Author Slash Coleman has a spot light so damn bright upon him you would think his alter ego was Batman. However, the story he tells will literally cause Batman to hang his head in shame. And that is AWESOME.
From an eclectic artistic father who always saw everything in his own defined way, a mother who hid behind her Jewish bloodline, and twin sisters who scared the crap out of him for the longest time, this book will show you the growth of a child to man who knew love, found love, lost love, and wrapped it all up in a crazy offbeat adventure called life. By the end of the book, you will wish your life were even a fraction as quirky as Coleman’s and will be suggesting it to everyone to read. Read more at Musing with Crayolakym
