Brian Sweany sign & presents Buy The Ticket Take The Ride at Tattered Cover Bookstore in Denver, CO

  • Tattered Cover 2526 East Colfax Avenue Denver, CO, 80206 United States (map)

In the highly personal tradition of Jenny Offill and Elena Ferrante, Buy the Ticket Take the Ride is loosely based on the Sweany's tragicomedic teenage life growing up in Indiana and his later years working in the New York publishing industry. Hunter S. Thompson biographer William McKeen called it, “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas meets Leave It to Beaver.” And bestselling author Frank Bill adds, “In the vein of David Sedaris or Chuck Palahniuk, Brian Sweany has written a tight satirical story that has you bent over with laughter one moment, then wiping away the tears the next minute.”
