9781420897371: Red Bird Just Like This

God told me a joke. It was terribly funny as they say. Sort of an L.S.D tinged flavor to it. After a while the smile becomes brittle. You end up falling in love with your own heart. It's a gruesome act _______to mind fuck yourself. There is no sound when the hymen ruptures.I had to ask God to whisper. Tries to tell it too fast, too loud. "Slow down, God." I have to remind him from time to time. Of course he's male;.... we're talking about me.Humor is pitiful? Full of pity as the proverbial bottomless cup it is. God knows how funny it all truly is, and how ridiculously we gyrate, tryin' to be cool, like him. Too far out. Lord have mercy;... we'll all split a gut at the end. It took me six (count em') years to write this small piece of my life. The temptation to fictionalize it was strong. Those of you who shake their head and say, "Oh sure, uh-huh, sure, right?" All I can tell you is, you don't know everything, and you should get to know me before your own possibilities atrophy.

About the Author:

Mr. Stevens has often confronted the authorities with aplomb and contempt. He does it again in this wonderful first novel. He also confronts cancer, amputation, and clinical inconsideration. The exigencies and vagaries of the medical establishment are revealed.The wildness and exuberance of the 60's are part of his experience from the Southern California days that he talks about from a unique perspective.Gypsies, con men, pool hustlers, thieves, ex-cons, prostitutes, drug addicts, drug dealers, and all the stories of the streets are done in a manner so direct and disarmingly honest as to be shocking. The stories of his friends and ex-lovers are so heart breakingly poignant you'll want to know him like a brother.He is as fiery as the "Red Bird" that is his AVATAR! This book flies!This is the first book in the autobiographical novel series Of Red Bird, Blue Bird, and lastly, Black Bird.
