Eric Spitznagel's blurb

Does it get better than this?

"What separates 6 Sick Hipsters from every other thriller about serial killers ritualistically murdering Brooklyn's cultural elite is that it's just so darn informative. Before reading Rayo Casablanca's weirdly fascinating debut, I didn't realize it was possible to have an out-of-body experience while taking a crap, or why you shouldn't accept acid from a morbidly obese Phillip K. Dick fan, or how knitting your own clothing can temporarily delay blindness. Sure, it's got gripping plot twists and hilarious characters, but it's also brimming with practical advice, like what to do if you're attacked by a feral baboon or how to avoid being shot in the asshole. Think you're gonna get that kind of life guidance from James Patterson or Michael Connelly? Don't count on it. If you're like me and you've always suspected that the meaning of life can be calculated with geometric stripping, and that cannibalism just might explain why everybody around you is so stupid, then you owe it to yourself to pick up this book. If Casablanca had just included a few Feng Shui tips and maybe a recipe for spicy hummus, 6 Sick Hipsters would be the only book you'd ever need. As it is, it's still pretty damn indispensable."
