Lord of the Game by Benjamin DeVos
"A bonkers scramble through Philadelphia. One man's head split open and all the beautiful pink goo inside showed to ya. This book almost reads like a series of high-as-fuck personal prayers. Every page has one or two or three enchanted surprises, where I was wondering, how could anybody else write this book? That being said, I recommended Lord of the Game to fans of Sam Pink (who did the cover painting). My favorite part of Lord of the Game was when the narrator gets called into his boss' office to get fired and the boss pulls out a gun and sticks it in his employees face. A bright lit book with its own face melted off, about fighting, existentialism, self-improvement, learning how to fight, hugging the homeless."
