    Count me as another reader who really savors both Aaron Cometbus writing and his deft ability to say somethingabout figuring out life through his stories real, fictional or reimagined This is his recounting of a house he lived in but also another of his love letters to punk, Berkeley and life FWIW, I m late to the party with Cometbus having largely ignored it in real time, despite many friends reverence and am now going back and reading them backwards It probably puts me in Count me as another reader who really savors both Aaron Cometbus writing and his deft ability to say somethingabout figurin...

    Maybe I m biased because I think over the course of my late teens an early twenties I have been to quite a few houses that reminded me of the Double Duece I have probably slept on the floor in them and felt gross But reading the book makes me nostalgic for it in a weird way I just think if you have any punk rock tendencies or experience in the punk lifestyle that this is the best book ever It s just so hilariously true, kinda gross and facinating all at the same time I love ...

    I have a hard time looking at this critically, as I m such a sucker for Aaron s stuff In fact it never even occurred to me to think of this as something to post on GR, as I got the 2 zine of Double Deuce and not the LG reprint, until I saw it on some one else s list So I can only offer another gushy gushy positive review, though I cringe at the overt berkeley punk and Kerouac name dropping I think of it as zine culture, and one of the best examples thereof, so on that level, owes as much t I have a hard time looking at this critically, as I m such a sucker for Aaron s stuff In fact it never even occurred to me to think of this as something to post on GR, as I got the 2 zine of Double Deuce and not the LG reprint, until I saw it on s...

    Double Deuce my possibly be my favorite book And for sure, Aaron is my favorite writer of all time.Cometbus really has a talent for portraying uncomfortable situations in a sweet sentimental light I laughed my way through Every character seemed like an old friend in a way They are all just a bunch of irresponsible punks living in Berkeley, CA Lots of fun adventures stories of pissing off the cops, selling fanzin...

    Really enjoyed the prose I think that not having a plot allows you to slow down and really focus on the little nuances of the writing He throws all these little funny observations and quirky scenarios in that make you stop and ponder Ponder what, I m not sur...

    This is set in the 80s and follows the misadventures of a group of lovable fuck ups in Berkeley who listen to punk rock, squat in abandoned buildings, play in punk bands, have runs ins with the police, never have jobs, drug abuse, etc A very entertaining r...

    I was surprised how much I liked this Aaron s analogies of his friends and the group togetherness and separateness really rang true, without any sort of forced labeling on his part I would think anyone who has lived through their 20 s would relate to a lot of this, even if y...
