Meet the characters running round here, eleven of them, each at his busting point: Jack Lynch, Bill Gurb, Jazz Jastovic, Charlie Feuk, Mickey Jung, Thomas Brighton, Fin Finley. With irony and humor, their minds and lives are laid bare for us to follow as one goes mad from the music in his brain, another tears his house down onto his own head, another takes off from the IRS with a bagful of C notes. Enter these pages and join this wild melee. You might meet someone you know. You might even catch a glimpse of yourself.
