An American translating punk in Paris living at the infamous Bohemian bookstore Shakespeare & Co. hooks up with a bipolar nymphomaniac who puts him through a mental sausage grinder. Enter the cops, hippy chicks, black hash, crazy old men, a major deluge, and a host of whacko international freaks and street people. Then POW!, the ultimate betrayal. This is the third memoir in an autobiographical series. The poetry-intoxicated hero of Spitzers breathless saga runs smack up into history just as shes changing her dress in the now-fabulous Paris of the late 20th century, and the result is electric. His choleric and vivid voice brings to life a story both breathless with life-dew and masterfully vivid, in the lineage of Henry Miller and Jack Kerouac, but in the tradition of Don Quixote, the timeless dreamer headed for the turbulent phantasm of art Andrei Codrescu.
