      Not my thing, but not a worthless read either.There were things I enjoyed about this short novel Odd details that stuck out almost inadvertently from the narrative like Chelsea s gloomy need for a father figure she uses Lester to satisfy or even odder, the Bill Haley keychain the career prostitute Honey drops when she visits him Thought it made her oddly relatable by alluding to a mysterious past where she lead a normal life and liked normal things And the book dances around that detail quite de [...]

      Man, this is a grim read indeed d I loved it Cizak s tale of a cab driver and his hot, young, sex crazed neighbour is about as noir as it gets Lester Banks is locked in a daily life struggle His job sucks, he can barely pay the rent on his apartment and there is little in the way of hope for things improving He hooks up with his young neighbour, Chelsea, and becomes her pimp as you do in a business adventure that is doomed to fail Our two leads new adventure starts off well enough with the money [...]

      A Dark Read You Won t ForgetAlec Cizak takes noir by the neck and rings out every brutal, wicked notion you ve ever had about street life When Lester s misery is at its peak, he has a notion that pimping a horny college student might pull them into a lucky streak I m confident I m not spoiling any plot points when I say things don t go exactly as Lester expects He digs himself and the girl he s pimping deeper and deeper into a grave when advice from an old buddy sparks the least selfish idea Les [...]

      As the designer on Pulp Modern Vol 2 No 1, edited by Alec Cizak, I was predisposed to enjoy his latest book, Down on the Street, from Down Out Books Fortunately, the novel goes far beyond any struggle for objectivity It is simply, terrific.As crime fiction goes, Down on the Street is on the deep, dark side Its main characters embrace one bad idea after another to make the rent or pay off an urgent obligation that looms around the corner Lester Banks is a balding, world weary cab driver who ekes [...]
