    One thought on “Fork on the Left, Knife in the Back”

    1. ARC for review.First, the title. I liked it, but then I LOVED it when I saw the whole thing (the Fire Island motto as told by Frank Corradino) in the Acknowledgments section, "fork on the left, knife in the back, spoon in the nose, dish, dish, dish."As for the book itself, It appears to be an accumulation of Musto's columns from the Village Voice (and does he not write for them anymore? He was an institution.) so some of it is quite dated and other parts go into long discussions of people and pl [...]

    2. I'm going to call this one done. I got through most of it, and I enjoyed it, but at some point celebrity gossip a decade old gets, well, old. He's fabulously funny and I wish I had read his columns at the time they were written - would have been that much more fun.

    3. Smutty StuffI found this very unentertaining. Its basically a bunch of his old gossip columns put into different chapters. I thought it would be a real book about his time in the entertainment industry.

    4. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.LOVED IT!!! All the laugh out loud hilarity that pop culture has given us in recent years in one book. Wish I would have known about this column sooner and read all his work. He has a great voice! Hope there are more books to come.

    5. Riveting and funny - when you get it. Musto writes superbly, with a perfect mix of sass and humor. And though his references occasionally get difficult to understand, his amazing one liners and segways make up for it all.
