Description

In the summer of 1963, seventeen-year-old Eddie Strull goes off to Europe with a supervised camp group of New York Jewish kids. But Eddie, ever the rebel, has other plans. Eddie wants to live as an adult. A writer. Right now. When they arrive in Paris, the last stop before heading home, Eddie sneaks out of the youth hostel and disappears into the bohemian labyrinth of the Left Bank. There he encounters a colorful array of artists, writers, actors, and one extraordinary prostitute, who draws him into a risky adventure. Ultimately, he becomes a wanted man. Instant adulthood turns out to be much more than Eddie bargained for.

A Note From the Publisher

After twenty years trembling on the brink of rock stardom and fifteen years working at record companies, Ted Myers left the music business—or perhaps it was the other way around—and took a job as a copywriter at an advertising agency. This cemented his determination to make his mark as an author.

The opening line of this book completely and utterly sets the premise and pace of whole book. The description matches the story, it is a great read and full of twists and turns that you do not expect. I would recommend and will be suggesting others to read this on my blog account.

*Thank you to the publisher, Ted Myers and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

The first thing that comes to mind when I read this book is that it is definitely written by a man. It is simultaneously hilarious, sexy, and on point from a teenager point of view. Eddie, or Jesse, is a young American in Paris but gets himself into big trouble. Trouble meaning kidnapped, robbed, befriended a prostitute, had all his money stolen from him, becomes a wanted man and is responsible for a murder. Some scenarios he gets into are laugh out loud funny that you being to wonder if this is not the memoir of the author himself. The ending is both incredibly sad but succinct. What a joyous adventure!
