    Story
    (401)

    Marc Maron was a parent-scarred, angst-filled, drug-dabbling, love-starved comedian who dreamed of a simple life: a wife, a home, a sitcom to call his own. But instead he woke up one day to find himself fired from his radio job, surrounded by feral cats, and emotionally and financially annihilated by a divorce from a woman he thought he loved. He tried to heal his broken heart through whatever means he could find - minor-league hoarding, Viagra addiction, accidental racial profiling, cat fancying, flying airplanes with his mind - but nothing seemed to work. It was only when he was stripped down to nothing that he found his way back.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I would recommend this audiobook to my brother because he's a big fan of Marc Maron's podcast and would like it a lot. I might recommend it to one of my other friend's but they rarely read the books I let them borrow so probably not.


    What does Marc Maron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I haven't read the book to compare to the audiobook but I think Marc Maron breaks through the forth wall and makes small comments on his own reading of the story as he works through it. It's a very interesting approach and I wish more authors would do this when reading their own works. It humanizes the process rather than leaving the author or reader nothing more than an impersonal who serves no other purpose but to deliver the words on the page.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Ten years ago the machines who rule the future sent an unstoppable Terminator to assassinate the yet unborn Marc Maron. They failed. In 2013, the machines will try again.
