Synopses & Reviews
Fiction. A Moby Dick for the 21st Century, FOR FUCKS SAKE is a story of obsession, passion, longing, vomiting, and ultimately, aimless travel to a lot of different cities and states, all in the name of true love. Follow "Robert" as he treks through the decadence of New Orleans, the petulance of Philadelphia, the opulence of New York City, and the redundance of Winnesota (the 51st state in this great nation of ours, located between Wisconsin and Minnesota, near the Canadian border), all the time in search of that one perfect woman! Instead, he encounters a variety of feminine personas who make his life more and more miserable: a lesbian bartender who lives in the Ozarks, a bisexual bartender who follows him from NYC to New Orleans to Philadelphia, and finally, a straight woman who is the wife of his best friend.
Already an underground cult classic, For Fucks Sake is a blisteringly honest and darkly comic portrayal of one man’s search for true love. Lasner takes us on an unforgettable ride from the Mardi Gras mayhem of New Orleans to the madness of early 1990s New York, hooking up along the way with, among others, a lesbian bartender and the wife of his best friend!
"If all writers were like Robert Lasner, it would mean The End of American Literature. Since I support The End of American Literature, Iurge you to buy this book and give it to a teenager. Tell him that it’s the future of writing. In twenty years, a generation of Lasner clones will bloom and American Literature will end."—Neal Pollack, Author, Neal Pollack Anthology of American Literature
A thrilling, funny, touching tale of love won, lost and then won again.
An honest and comic portrayal of the extent to which one man will go to find true love.
