Spokane, Washington, is nearly perfect for most people, but Jack Fitzpatrick is not one of them. Hours after graduation and armed with his final paycheck from his nemesis, Jack heads for Southern California. Dreams are a dime a dozen in the City of Angels. Broke, barely scraping by, and hating his life as a temp, L.A. is definitely not what Jack expected. But after reading "Best Paying Jobs of 1987" in Time magazine, he decides to go after the only one he thinks he has a shot at: institutional bond broker.

If you could sum up Freaks I've Met in three words, what would they be?

Hilarious first person account of a young man from the Pacific NW who is determined to prove to his awful neighbor lady that he is a force to be recokoned with.

What did you like best about this story?

Narrator was spot on perfect, echoing stereotypes of modern America.

Which scene was your favorite?

the white couch, or the sticker bush at the river.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending was not what I expected, but truly loved.
