I guess the connection between the book to which W. links and the comic strip is the fact that both the book's title and the comic strip contain the words "exit" and "Brooklyn."

'Last Exit to Brooklyn' is also a book about exit strategies, or the lack thereof ...

I see; interesting. I didn't pick that up from skimming what's available at Amazon. How high is this book on your list of recommended reading?

Required reading.

Last Exit to Brooklyn was a good book back in the 1960's for a college student. Its a series of short stories about pathetic people involved in sexy or violent situations. I read the author's next book. It was just further degenerate behavior, even more than a college student could find acceptable.

Now, when I want sex and violence, I just read non-fiction. Just got done with a book on Napoleon and am starting a book on the French revolution. Much better. Much more sex and violence.

Oh, yeah, immediate recognition: I've met or known of a few like that in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
