  • "Literary gold - especially for a first novel. The author, Mark Hayes, is a mad man and this book made me laugh so much. He's a funny Irish guy who taught this American girl what the American dream means. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in living the "LA lifestyle" vicariously through an insightful Irish guy. I felt like I was there with him -- or even in his head -- as he described his interesting, bizarre, and sometimes wild experiences while acclimating to life in LA.Mark's writing voice is unique and fun. Beware though: you may start calling people apes, start wuu'ing, or saying other odd words like "tut" unexpectedly after reading. As Mark would say, 'Read on!'" --Nicole Withrow, Goodreads
  • "It's been a while since I've read a comedic book of this nature. Biographic and candid, Hayes is a very talented and funny writer that will have you laughing out loud and wanting to see him live at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood." --Amazon Reviews
