Little Elvises

Junior Bender finds out why the 1960s rock'n'roll scene in Philadelphia is getting people killed in 2012ish L.A., among other things. I really enjoyed this book. The characters are great, the plot is good enough to confuse me, and there is some witty dialogue.

Quote:

"Biggest day of the year for Ed was December 26. All the Christmas stuff went to half off, and he shopped all day long."... "If I got rid of it all now, it'd be like crumpling up Ed's memory and tossing it away." (pg. 110) I wept a little at this.

Quote #2:

"Alice says, sure, two sets of rules. Men and women need different rules on account of how they're not anything alike, what with women being all admirable and so forth." (pg. 236)
