Publisher's Summary

Look who's on the Dick Gibson Radio Show: Arnold the Memory Expert ("I've memorized the entire West Coast shoreline - except for cloud cover and fog banks"). Bernie Perk, the burning pharmacist. Henry Harper, the nine-year old orphan millionaire, terrified of being adopted. The woman whose life revolves around pierced lobes. An evil hypnotist. Swindlers. Con-men. And Dick Gibson himself. Anticipating talk radio and its crazed hosts, Stanley Elkin creates a brilliant comic world held together by American manias and maniacs in all their forms, and a character who perfectly understands what Americans want and gives it to them.

Good narration.

While the narrator did what I found to be a great job, I wasn't so taken by the story. It certainly had some interesting moments, but I think it just wasn't for me. It felt like a series of odd episodes in this man's life in radio, but had no overarching story line. And mostly, I just didn't find myself really caring about any of the characters in it. That being said, someone else might love it.
