Lutz is from the next town to me.
An excellent book. Honest, moving in places and very warts and all - hilarious in parts too. Probably the most thorough and realistic portrait of Big 'Ed I've come across. Highly recommended.
Utterly, utterly ridiculous book. Falls into a couple of cliche traps, but it is entertaining enough all the same. Some of the decisions he makes will give you the urge to leap into the pages and give him a slap, but his personality and the ridiculous situations reminded me of a dear friend of mine who is now deceased, so I found myself enjoying it all the same.
