The Poet and the Bastard
J. C. Bass, author
Todd is an overly-sensitive wannabe poet who spends his days working in a laundromat, toiling in obscurity. Jon is a hard-drinking smart-ass who produces low-budget B-movies, his only claim to fame being a blockbuster flop about a dragon. As old friends, they're used to stumbling through life together, but when you add Todd's stripper girlfriend Rebecca into the mix, their misadventures get taken to a whole new level. "The Poet and the Bastard" chronicles the ups and downs of three twenty-somethings as they struggle through life, love, and the prospect of finally having to grow up.
