"This gently written yet perky novel grew out of an attempt by Starypan to write a memoir; he even shares his fictional protagonist’s nickname. The result is simultaneously moving and unsentimental. It manages to link together what initially seem to be nothing more than a series of discrete, disjointed episodes in one man’s haphazard life. Throughout, the author weaves Biter’s memories of his past into his present-day narrative, rendering the main story all the richer. In doing so, he creates a thoughtful, quirky and even comic chronicle that demonstrates how even apparent chaos can resolve into a coherent story.
A warming, delightful novel unabashed in its depiction of life’s eccentricities."
