Legendary vagabond poet Jim Christy reacts to Leper Tango

“The writing reminds me by turns of Henry Miller, Hunter Thompson, Malaparte and Blaise Cendrars…Leper Tango also put me in mind of a James M. Cain novel, Postman, especially. Only better written. The observations, sidereal stuff, similes, metaphors, analogies, all that is superb. Also, I like the supporting cast, Tranh, especially, but the second tier hookers, as well. I don`t know who the hell in this country could do any better, certainly no one is writing with such wild style.”

Jim Christy is a literary vagabond with few peers. He was once described by George Woodcock as ‘one of the last unpurged North American anarchistic romantics’. His publisher has called him a hip Indiana Jones; one reviewer credited him with a ‘Gary Cooper-like presence’. His buddies have included hobos, jazz musicians, boxers, and non-academic writers such as Charles Bukowski, Peter Trower and Joe Ferone.
