A notorious biker and two ghostwriters present tales--some true, some not, some embellished--of the open road and outlaw life. Lurid romance, violence, and rough humor come packaged in a style meant to represent the oral informality of aging Hell's Angel Sonny Barger, an eyewitness to many of the incidents he relates. Character actor Philip Bosco does justice to the style by sounding like a quasi-literate boozing brawler. One suspects that Barger takes more delight in regaling his barroom buddies with this fare than Bosco takes here. This reviewer is grateful for this, as he find the permanent adolescents and sociopaths limned herein repulsive enough without the glee. Y.R.
