Existential Thirst Trap (Large Print / Paperback)
This book is a love letter to punk rock ethos, mixtape culture, and experiencing life one shot of Jameson at a time. It's raw, funny, and emotional-equal parts Sedaris and Bukowski, with an unforgettable twist. If you've ever had a drink with a stranger in a dark bar or had your heart kicked in one too many times, this book is for you. The collection touches on everything from divorce, mental health, moving to New Orleans with $300 and no job to now living in Austin, Texas, somehow, with a writing career. There's wild ass drinking stories, Buddhism, death, newfound happiness, and all that weirdness in between.
