I picked this book up because it was by a local author It turned out to be pretty good The author used to still does drive a cab, and this book has the feeling of having been written while waiting for fares in the dark It s a great theory on how a vampire might have negotiated life in America in the late 1980s
Fred couldn t write when he was churning out poetry and sports zines in Madison in the mid 80s and beyond, and he shows off his lack of ability by publishing his first novel with a vanity press Quite simply, Schepartz manages something far worse than what Jackie Mitchard has produced, and that s saying something about literature from Madison I finally have something to give ZERO stars to.
This book is a fun, quick read It does not add much to the vampire genre but if you are familiar with Madison, Wis you ll recognize the name of the streets as the writer once worked for a local cab company.
Al Farkus, a 1,000 year old Vampire loses everything in the stock market crash of 1987.He is forced to find work and ends up hiring on with Co op Cab in Madison, WI.How Farkus, an elitist, learns to overcome his classism and work in a cooperative provides the drama and the humor.
An interesting book, I found myself fascinated by the look at ordinary life through the eyes of a previously wealthy vampire.
I took me a bit to get into this book but I enjoyed it once I did Look forward to Fred improving as a writer because this book shows he s got promise.
