Written by Craig Ferguson
If I didn’t already love Craig Ferguson an inordinate amount before I read this novel, I sure as hell would have after. Listen, I knew Ferguson was a talented and funny man, I found that out last summer when he was probably the best thing that got me through a very tough break-up, but I didn’t know that he had this in him.
This is quite nearly a masterpiece.
Sure, it starts off a little slow and juvenile, like what I imagine a relationship of any sort with Ferguson would begin like, but it quickly evolves into so much more. The potty humour and foul language give way to true poetry and insight of the human soul. One page of this book would have me laughing out loud, and two paragraphs later I’d be close to weeping at the tragedy of it all. This book has it all. Humour, drama, parables, Carl Jung, satire, Virgil, sex, time travel, heaven, hell, and god damn genius. Something can be taken out of every page. Craig Ferguson is one talented and intelligent man and the world is a better place with him being in it.
