A great book for the grown-up punk, or anyone who just likes to read about the darker side of life. Bunny Munro is a traveling salesman with charisma, a drinking habit, drugs on hand, and a nine-year-old son hitting the road to escape his wife’s recent suicide. As the titles suggests, this trip turns into a downward spiral of bad decision making, great entertainment. Do not gift this to anyone who enjoys Oprah Book Club selections. Give this to the guy that sympathized with the protagonists in Camus’ The Stranger.
