A rather apt book to take along with me during my travels following a band. So far Jonathan Tropper can do no wrong by me, and while this isn't as laugh out loud hilarious as This Is Where I Leave You, it is just as good only in its own way. The characters are quintessentially dysfunctional, as one would expect from Tropper, funny, sad and fully fleshed out. I could picture the group of sad sack men sitting around the pool shooting the shit and ogling the college girls just as I could picture Silver making a total ass of himself at a funeral or wedding. If you've ever been hurt or disappointed by a parent, this book might ring true even if said parent isn't a former rock star. Highly recommended unless you're offended by foul language.
