Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Kicked out of his house at age eighteen, Montreal malcontent Robbie Bookbinder drifts through the city, meeting Rosie the stripper, Queenie Graves, the chicken debeaker Louie-Louie, and a girl named Ivy.

Review:
Eighteen-year-old Robbie Bookbinder is bummed out and bored, cut adrift in the mid-1970s – the decade he calls The Great Hangover. Sex feels outmoded, drugs don't seem to deliver like they used to, and rock and roll's a bust in tired old Montreal. Quebec's arming up for a cultural revolution, and bike gangs are warring in the streets. In Robbie Bookbinder, we meet a character who embodies all the potential, self-delusion, and resilience of contemporary youth. All Robbie thinks he needs is a kick-start. What he gets is scared half to death, as he discovers that life only improves when you take a stand in it.

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“An exhilarating romp.…[It] crackles with wit and insight.”
–Geoff Pevere, Globe and Mail

“A combination of Portnoy’s Complaint and a gutsy Catcher in the Rye for the nineties.”
–CBC-TV’s The Journal
