'Listen, you son of a bitch, life isn't all a goddam football game!
You won't always get the girl! Life is rejection and pain and loss...' A Fan's Notes - the horrible and hilarious account of a long failure.
Our narrator is the ultimate unreconstructed male. His primary concerns are alcohol, sex and the New York Giants.
But things go very wrong for him - he drinks too much, he's impotent and the Giants start to loose. And so we follow his boozy trail through two failed marriages, many bars and intermittent visits to Avalon Valley - a private home for the mentally ill.
Shockingly politically incorrect, terribly self-indulgent but more than redeemed by its unremitting honesty and insight this is the unforgettable story of a man laid bare.
