Good success, Mr. Gorsky, the 1st novel through 3-time Emmy Award successful comic Dave Konig, is The Bowery Boys on velocity within the wild, wild West facet of recent York urban of the early Eighties; reasonable single-room occupancy inns, crime, and occasions sq. sleaze. A extra blameless time.
Three teenage runaways - naive Danny Fisher, highway savvy Bobby Boyd, and Bobby's delusional artist brother James Boyd - shape a wildly dysfunctional familial bond. They dream, plot, and scheme to flee their misfit international via crime (a poorly deliberate theft of worthy comedian books), artwork (James is confident his unsuccessful profession as a graffiti artist will propel him to Hollywood fame), and a bit support from a clown's motor vehicle jam-packed with deposed Ping-Pong champions, fats junkies, washed-up boxers, midgets, getting older Nazis, and enigmatic motion picture stars.
Sort of like an city Lord of the Flies - yet with larger jokes.
Good success, Mr. Gorsky is, particularly almost certainly, the nice American Novel.
