Hi. Today, I’m reviewing The Don Con by Richard Armstrong. He’s going to be on my podcast and he sent me a copy of his book and I absolutely loved it. It’s funny. That’s what I loved about it most. It’s just hilarious.
It’s about, basically, a kind of third-rate actor, I guess you could say? A struggling actor? One who did struggle? I’m not sure if he still wants to act or if he’s just going to continue to go to these cons. When I say cons, I’m talking about conventions. He goes to conventions and signs, autographs photographs … autographs photos. There we go. Photographs of himself. He was apparently a bit player on some mob shows like The Sopranos—bit to the point where people will say, “Oh, yeah, I remember you. You were so-and-so.” And he’s like, “No, no, no, I was … I didn’t even have a name. I was Thug #2 or something like that.” Anyway, it’s just very, very funny. He ends up getting involved with real gangsters and trying to pull off this heist.
Well, I just won’t say anything more, because saying more would ruin it. I mean, when you get involved with gangsters and heists, you know there’s going to be action and it’s going to be interesting. And it’s also very, very funny. And I just loved it. So this came out, according to this, April 1, 2019. This was an advance review copy. And I feel very fortunate to have it and to have been able to read it, And I look forward to talking to the author eventually. Talk to you later. See ya!
