I can count on one hand the number of authors who, when they release a new book, I buy it immediately. I can reduce that number to one, yes one, the number of authors who, when they release a new book I literally drop everything I’m doing and everything I’m currently reading and read his book. Why? I think I said it in a previous review….Dan is like a Van Gogh with words (and when you read about and see what he does with his photography you know he’s a genius with a camera too – the man is just crazy talented). You get lost in his words as if you’re really there, experiencing everything, because he paints the picture so damn well. With these tales of his often hilarious, many time embarrassing and sometimes poignant moments with the one-of-a-kind Dirk, I actually feel like I’m sitting in a room with them somewhere laughing so hard I’m stealing Dirk’s kleenex box from him (wink wink) to dry my tears. These stories will make your heart sing in this crazy, effed up world. Read them and you will know without a doubt that there is still hope for the future because the world can’t have screwed up too bad if there are still people like Dirk in it. And thank goodness there’s a gifted man like Dan to show us that.
