I loved this story! I went into it knowing nothing other than it was a comedy about a string of bad events happening to a guy in a short amount of time. A few short pages in I was totally hooked and unable to put it down, and not having realized that it was written in the early 70's, the New York of that era was a pleasant surprise. This story would make an excellent movie, so vividly is it played out.

Though a little slow the first few pages, it soon picked up and hilarity ensued.
I picked the book up off the shelf because of it's title. The fact that the main character is so down on his luck and still manages to have a sense of humor was amazing. The actually plot, being robbed three times and finally getting lucky by catching him and tying him up. I could not stop laughing at some points. James Kirkwood managed to keep me so interested in what was going on I couldn't put the book down until I was finished.

This is a completely twisted story of one man's horrible robbery and adventures in writing a book.

I obtained this book by chance - I purchased a sack of books from the second hand store because it had one particular out of print book I desperately wanted. I didn't read all the books in the sack, but this particular book begged to be read. At first, I thought it was a little depressing and slow. I almost stopped reading it. Thank goodness I didn't! The rest of the book was absolutely hilarious. Stolen from three times, catching the theif, losing your girlfriend and cat? The entire time, I wondered if the main character had lost his marbles or was just keeping his sense of humor despite all that had happpened. Really, an amazing book.

Dark humor. Back reads: "It's New Years Eve in New York City. Your best friend died in September, you've been robbed twice, your girlfriend is leaving you, you've lost your job...and the only one left to talk to is the gay burglar you've got tied up in the kitchen...P.S. Your cat is dead."

I have not read this book. The jacket describes it as a "much-loved black-humor comic novel of manners andescalating disaster."
