Book Description

This startlingly original debut from This American Life contributor Jonathan Goldstein is, according to a Vice Magazine reviewer, “the cleanest dirty book I’ve ever read.” It’s a snapshot of the mind of Josh, a rather confused young man who must cope with his father’s listlessness and his own overwhelming lust, not to mention the arrival of the Moschiach, inventor of the infamous Love Lotion.

Lenny Bruce Is Dead walks a tightrope between the searingly funny and the poignant. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll long for some Love Lotion of your own. And you won’t forget Josh–ineptitude, scatological neuroses, urban angst, self–deprecating humor and all.
