Critic Reviews

"This is vintage Jenkins - profane, outrageous, and sharp-eyed in its parody of the world of big-time golf." ( Newsweek)

Dan Jenkins best work

insanely hilarious, and still as fitting as in 1971 about life on the PGA Tour. Here's to all the Kenny Lee Pucketts in the world

Chock full of ewwwww.....

The narrator is great, but the story is terrible. This was actually made into a very clever movie starring Randy Quaid, minus all the suck.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Solid Perfect?

I listen to it during this years Open Championship so the time overseas was grrrreaattt.

What about Jeffrey Brick’s performance did you like?

He kept my attension and did not detract from the story.

Beverly, do I need to say anymore?

Any additional comments?

for a book written in the 70's its a great story for 2012. I will buy the book so I can write down the saying.
