This memoir is a brutally honest, take-no-prisoners, nonfiction account of the author's experiences while working in the security industry in New York City, for parts of the years 2009 and 2010. Dividing time between his personal and professional life, it covers several major events and misadventures, including the move to New York from South Carolina, his "business casual" wedding, a death in the family, and memorable encounters with many unsavory denizens of the Rotten Apple. Written in first-person, in Steven's inimitable style, along with running commentary that reveals much about his values and world views, this is a rare glimpse into the mind of a blue-collar author whose writing harkens back to Charles Bukowski. Thinking of moving to New York? Consider this to be required reading...some might stay the course, after finishing this series of reminiscences, but far more are likely to reconsider their plans. You're soon to find out that in the world's most famous metropolis, You Never Know Who's Crazy.
