    Victor Geishel does it again Rollicking good noir Morgan, a visiting professor at a Midwestern university Geishel assures his colleagues it certainly NOT the one where he teaches creative literature, wakes up naked next to a young coed he bonked the night before Problem is she s not waking up having been given some pills by her weed dealer that should really not have been taken with all that alcohol Morgan s also teaching poetry to some grad students, one paper he is forced to read and gra Victor Geishel d...

    Questo libro un reduce di anni e anni e anni di permanenza nella mia wishlist, superstite di un periodo in cui romanzi pulp alla Lansdale , con situazioni impreviste e assurde, personaggi bislacchi, dialoghi paradossali, tanto sesso e tanta violenza, mi piacevano molto Ora, non pi tanto Probabilmente ha fatto il suo tempo per quanto mi riguarda.Tutto comincia con un poeta, ovviamente in crisi ...

    This idyllic hardboiled crime novel set in the halls of academia coasts along breezily, but some genuine laugh out loud moments make it a worthwhile, if luridly pulpy, read Whether you ve spent time as an English major or not, the idiosyncrasies of the Creative Writing department are pretty much exactly what you d imagine, so Jay Morgan s reactions to his students strained poetry or bureaucratic department heads will ring true for most readers However, Morgan s general lack of agency throughou This idyl...

    I ve got kind of a rule never to read novels set in academia where the main character is a writer as I ve found most have a hothouse fiction flavor to them But rules are made to be broken and I made an exception with The Pistol Poets Alas, I almost didn t make it past the first chapter A quick search of Google maps would have shown Victor that East St Louis is in Illinois, not Missouri Other distractions included automatic pistols, clips and cordite, making this seema poorly resea I ve got kind of a rule never to read novels set in academia where the main character is a writer as I ve found most have a hothouse fiction flavor to them But rules are made to be broken and I made an exception with The Pistol Poets Alas, I almost didn t make it past the first chapter A quick s...

    Pistol Poets was good, but not as good as Gischler s Gun Monkeys It s set at a college and features an English department, which I suspect was inspired by his day job , which isn t a bad thing, but seemed a little trite and cliched Still, it was an enjoyable read, wit...

    A wickedly entertaining and at times funny novel, this is sort of an American equivalent of Trainspotting set in the world of a college campus.When Harold Jenks and his friend Spoon do a hold up in an alley that goes wrong, Jenks thinks he can take over the victim s life and attend college and maybe make something of himself and escape the street lifestyle but he doesn t bargain on so many obstacles in his way, namely his boss Red Zach, getting caught up in murder, drug busts and many other comp A wickedly entertaining and at times funny novel, this is sort of an American equivalent of Trainspotting set in the world of a college campus.When Harold Jenks and his friend Spoon do a hold up in an alley that goes wrong, Jenks thinks he can take over the victim s life and attend college and maybe make something of himself and escape the street lifestyle but he doesn t bargain on so many obstacles in his way, namely his boss Red Zach, getting caught up in murder, drug busts and many other complications along the way.The main story is offset by a whole host of other characters...

    So, who do you root for when everyone is morally bankrupt I guess the least bankrupt guy That was the dilemma I faced while reading the Pistol Poets What I was hoping for was one of those books where different groups of interesting people converge at the climax of the book and somehow it all works out for a few of them Luckily, I got that.Living in Green Country Oklahoma, where the book is set, does make melikely to enjoy the book and the wackiness of the small town university life tha So, who do you root for when everyone is morally bankrupt I guess the least bankrupt guy That was the dilemma I faced while reading the Pist...
