What happens when a middle-aged journalist not only invests heavily in the stock market but goes through a divorce and numerous rebounds as well? He writes American Sucker, a funny, sometimes touching exposé of his own foibles and misunderstandings of market lore and himself--before and after the dot-com bubble burst. Be prepared for a long listen, ably voiced by Dennis Boutsikaris, who is well cast as the voice of the disgruntled author. Denby's ramblings are bolstered by real-life anecdotes of brushes with the now incarcerated Sam Wachsal and his ilk. A bonfire of the vanities for the ears. D.J.B.
