Barstool Prophets is not just the coming-of-age story of a young writer working in a bar in New York's East Village, but also the chronicle of an iconic neighborhood and its wild spectrum of characters. From a love-addled bartender to a suicidal doorman to the junkies in Tompkins Square Park, they are a family, of sorts. In many cases, this is the only family some of them have, complete with all the joys and dysfunctions. The nameless narrator guides himself, the reader, and, in some ways, the entire neighborhood through the highs and lows of the past and into the present.

This was a great find that brought back a lot of memories of being into a bar scene. The protagonist (unnamed) is an interesting character that really brought the reader into the story line and drew vivid portraits of the motley personalities who make up a bar scene. It was fun to read and also just so enjoyably well written. --Goodreads.com
This is a must read punk rock memoir from thuggish mischief to introspection and loyalty. If you are curious about, live or have ever lived in NYC, this is a page turner and an awesome look back on the old NYC. --Goorreads.com
