In an article titled "Penn and story-teller", Sunday's New York Post reviews Penn Jillette's new fiction "Sock".
---"With his smug baby face, greasy mane, and boorish manner, Jillette has always been a love-him-or-hate-him kind of performer....Like the grating onstage riffs that made him famous, the book reads like a harangue-loud, spitfire in your grill."
---"Except for one difference:It's enjoyable. Exhilarating,even."
---The book is narrated from the perspective of a sock monkey named Dickie, it's the story of his owner, a man he calls Little Fool. There's a murder of a hooker, Little Fool once dated.
---"The plot is entertaining, but it's the asides that make it hum. Delivered through the felt lips of a stuffed puppet, Jullette's voice becomes a joy on paper, delivering nuggets from a lifetime's worth of collected wit and-in some instances-actual wisdom".

How can anyone not love the life support system for a mind that thinks of a book written from the perspective of a hooker dating sock?
