Overview
Drunks, punks, junkies, and whores: these are Chris Walter's people and he portrays them with empathy and humour. The characters in this collection of short stories have much in common with each other, but more than anything else, they are real enough to stumble over and piss on your shoe. So laugh when you can, cry if you want, but when you close your eyes, these flawed yet enduringly human characters will still be with you.

About the author
Recovering drug addict and hope-to-die punk rocker Chris Walter began writing purposefully in 1998 after realizing that his life up to that point had been almost meaningless. His first published novel, Punk Rules OK went largely unnoticed except by detractors, inspiring him to take a DIY approach to the game. With help from his girlfriend who worked in the printing trade, he started GFY Press and began to write, publish, and distribute a steady stream of fiction novels and music biographies. After kicking drugs to the curb in 2001, Chris expanded GFY Press to include unschooled troublemakers Simon Snotface, Stewart Black, and Drew Gates, drawing further criticism from the established literary community. More than twenty books and sixteen years later, Chris Walter and GFY Press remain unrepentant and committed.
