    @tomdoig Thanks! Ordered The Coal Face this morning, by the way. Really look forward to reading it.

Leyner is a twisted wizard, a genre-busting virtuoso, working at the outer edge of narrative convention

The Sugar Frosted Nutsack is dizzyingly brilliant. Mark Leyner is a hyperkinetic shaman, who flies the banner of rum and candy and writes like a one-eyed feral bandit. His new book is supremely original, delirious and synapse-shattering.
