Johnny about Jonathan Shaw’s book Narcisa:

’93Finally, after twenty-plus years of coaxing, cajoling, pleading and basic needling on my part, my ol’92scallywag brother, Jonathan Shaw has put his pen to paper, dragging and drudging up virulent and violent hallucinations from his not so cute brain-scape. Been waiting too long for this. So have you, whoever you are, believe me. If you don’92t yet know him, you will. If you didn’92t want to, too bad. Once he’92s in, he’92s in. J.S.’92s words, work, life, lives, deaths, rants, rage, hilarity and taste rank with the best of ’91em. If Hubert Selby Jr., Charles Bukowski, Ernest Hemingway, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Neil Cassady, Dr. Hunter S.Thompson, the Marquis de Sade, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Edward Teach, Charley Parker, Iggy Pop, Louis-Ferdinand Celine, R. Crumb, Robert Williams, Joe Coleman, Dashiell Hammett, E.M. Cioran and all of the Three Stooges had all been involved in some greasy, shameful, evil whorehouse orgy, Jonathan Shaw would surely be its diabolical, reprobate spawn.’93
