A hysterically scathing first novel about ambition and its discontents. Frank Bones is a self-destructive, take-no-prisoners, bad boy comic at the bottom rung. Lloyd Melnick is a long-lost acquaintance whose work on the smash hit The Fleishman Show has made him the hottest comedy writer in town.

Maybe his next novel will get the job done a little better. An impressive debut novel. I had a stronger affinity for Lloyd (an ambitious novel writer) rather than the gregarious and often pernicious Bones.

After finding some entertainment in The Angry Buddhist, I tried another Seth Greenland book, but I was less impressed with this one. It's an LA story of parasitic and opportunistic relationships of people who are seeking wealth and fame. There was no strong ethical male figure as is found in so many of the MRB blog. Frank Bones is an aging comedian, one who has been making a living but has never really made it big. Frank knows that he deserves to be a star. When he was still in New York, Frank ran into Lloyd Melnick, a not-too-talented writer. Unlike Frank, Lloyd has hit it really big by happening to be in the right place at the right time. Lloyd knows that he has been very lucky and does not deserve the fortune he has made. Both men are romantically involved with social mountaineering women. Some of the dialogue was fun. There was one scene between Frank and his girlfriend, Honey Call (really), an aspiring but untalented actress. They are having a morning together. Nearly naked, she microwaves mac and cheese for the two of them for breakfast. The author reveals that her pubic hair is shaved in the shape of a heart, but then, she insists they say a prayer before beginning the meal. That was enough absurdity to keep me reading for a while. Alas, halfway through the book, no crime had yet occurred. Given that this is mostly a crime-genre blog, the biggest crime may be that I bought the book. I put the book down, couldn't stand it any more. It does not get my recommendation, and I don't have plans to spend more time with Mr. Greenland.

I came across Seth's second book first, Shining City, loved it, so I thought that I would give this one a try...at first I was not digging it as much as I loved Shining City, not as funny, but this is a decent story, full of detail, and just an all around great book. I feel for Frank, a comic who has been acosted to write for a television show that he just does not want to do. Still trying to keep current in the comedy sector, he decides to write for the show, and compete with Lloyd, his nemesis. After becoming entralled in a drunken fight at a bar in Tulsa, and after leaving the bar to find solace in his nearby motel room, he finds himself wrapped up in a murder, that he is sure he did not commit. Interesting.....

I've read The Bones three times and recommended it to countless others. Greenland's haunting premonitions, crisp dialogue and self-effacing humor make the pages turn voluntarily. "When the lights go on, the Bones delivers."

Very surprised by the lack of proof reading.

I enjoyed this book -- I read it for book club -- but it's somewhat lacking in substance. The book was fun, but the second half didn't really match the first half. It's not a bad read, but really only a step up from an airplane book.

Very well done. This is my second Seth Greenland book, and I think he has a great future.

The Bones was a very funny and cynical book about a stand-up comic on the skids and his (sort-of) buddy, who is a TV sit-com writer. It reminded me of a harder-edged version of Larry McMurtry's Hollywood books. Highly recommended!
A great read! Mr Greenland has survived the business (Hollywood - specifically comedy) and the tale he tells is funny, poignant and alive.
