The King of Good Intentions is the first of at least two rock novels in a series by Fredrick. You all know how fond I am of rock novels in a series. Let's just say Fredrick's debut reminded me a bit of my 2003 debut Stuck Outside of Phoenix, except his is set in Los Angeles and has a narrator (and writer) boasting some serious acuity with the language. Lovely prose, lots of good honest trouble. Give the review a read, and give the novel a chance as well!
