It was actually by chance that I found this book and I am overjoyed that I did. I must say, this is a fantastic piece of work. Boscutti's style of writing is unique, from the characters names in all caps, the single word sentences, and the sarcastic wit, it makes this author truly original. I absolutely loved this book from start to finish. Because of stumbling upon this book, I actually read his other books as well, "You know what I like to do at four o'clock, Ed?" and "Selling Anne Frank" I definitely would recommend anything by this author.

I was given a chance to read a book by Stefano Boscutti called Boscutti's Don Simpson (Novel). Up to this point I had never heard of Mr. Boscutti, but as with all books I will read anything once. I was a little worried when I first started this book. I felt like I was starting to read a screenplay with the first line "Fade up live version of JIMI HENDRIX'S psychedelic 'Are You Experienced?' under flashes of 'Dangerous Minds' movie poster with MICHELLE PFEIFFER.." And what's up with those caps? Every famous person mentioned in this novel is done in all caps. Now, I have read many novels in my 36 years of life but I can honestly say I have never read a novel where there were caps for people's names. Nor have I read a novel where it feels like you are reading an autobiography turned screenplay. I have now. And I was greedy in absorbing every word of it. Fade to black. This is not a biography. It's not even a memoir. It's purely a work of fiction. I have one word for it: Brilliant. Or in this case it would be BRILLIANT! Descriptive, but short and to the point. It's not long. It's not all drawn out. It's right to the point. Boscutti picks the novel up the day that Don Simpson went into cardiac arrest for combined drug intoxication. Ouch. What follows is Simpson "speaking" at the beginning of every chapter and then the rest of the chapter is the "story" of the events in Simpson's life. You get the sense that this is one of those stories that he's "telling" or remembering in his head as his life fades away. He is alone and there is nothing anyone can do to save him. Stories unfold about drug addiction, alcohol, sex addiction, S&M sex fetish, plenty of foul words, prostitution, and a behind the scenes look of the movie business. Is it fact or fiction? It makes you wonder. Every time another star is mentioned I start thinking back to that time period and wondering, "Did this really happen"? Do I remember this? No. Ok. Well, maybe it DID happen? Is it live? Or is it Memorex? Oh, poo. You know I just had to say it. Its so cliché, its perfect.
