At last! My bookselling days are now complete! With AK Press reissuing my favorite book of all time, I can ride the rails into the sunset, as my "want list as long as my arm" customers can buy a new copy of this and not have to wait for a rare, OP copy to stumble in. Much more than crime, much more than an autobiography of San Francisco's greatest hobo thief, You Can't Win is an entertaining, engrossing testament to an era very long gone. Masterful!

Published: Scribner, 6/2012
In the life of an independent bookseller, there are a few “rights of passage” discoveries before we truly earn our stripes: Jack Black’s You Can’t Win, The Wasp Factory by Ian Banks and heck, everything by Jim Thompson.  But when I came up at Green Apple, some 20+ years ago, nothing rung my bell quite as loudly as Kem Nunn’s surf-mystery, Tapping the Source.
