Description

A dark, clever tale of two brothers, a fishing trip, drugs, and murder, this novel skillfully combines classic motifs of epic struggle and intelligent layers of imagery, reminiscent of The Old Man and the Sea, and the raw, tweaked perspective of a Hunter S. Thompson novel. Les Claypool established himself as the most original rock bassist in the 1990s, as front man for the hit band Primus. They toured the world with groups like Jane's Addiction, Public Enemy, and U2. Claypool penned the theme song to TV's South Park, and has guested on albums by many other artists, including Jerry Cantrell and Tom Waits.
