Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome read! I bought this book blindly, and I'm so glad I did. It was an adventure form cover to cover, and although some of the ideas were very crazy (okay the whole premise of the book was pretty out there), it truly seemed honest and heartfelt. I can only hope to someday have half of the adventures and memories that are contained in this story, set in no other than NYC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hugs & Fishes A gorgeous book full of glitter and garbage - the author takes you on an amazing journey, exposing himself and a particular time in his life that is often hilarious, sometimes harrowing, but always enlilghtening. Buy this book, you will thank yourself - if you don't, well... you would never have got past the velvet rope anyway. Love you Josh Purcell
