The Cost of Living will easily make my top 10 of 2013 list.
I’ve read all of Roberge’s work, all that I’m aware of (Drive [novel], More than they Could Chew [novel], Working Backwards from the Worst Moment of My Life [stories]) and I’d read anything else in the future. He’s one of my favorite writers, so you know, having the history I do, you can trust my words.
To read The Cost of Living is to read the rock and roll story that everyone’s always wanted, but could never find; there’s too much glitter and groupies, too much ego in other rock and roll stories. With The Cost of Living, you’re forced to deal with, and ultimately fall in love with, a life that’s been destroyed by the stage. Every rock and roll story you’ve read before will seem cliche compared to The Cost of Living.

P.S: I promise my praise has nothing to do with the fact that Roberge blurbed my novel, Stranger Will. I was a fan of his way before he read my book.
