Former pro wrestler Mick Foley's first foray into fiction is an unusual mix of insanity, perversity, and humor. More often than not, the novel--cartoonish as it is--works, but it's not for everyone, and not for the faint of heart. TIETAM BROWN most likely will appeal to those who cheered Foley as a three-time WWF champion. In short, this is a novel by an author whose public persona matches its likely audience. Foley's reading is surprisingly good. Title character Tietam Brown is a bizarre and emotionally troubled teenager, and Foley's tone conveys the youth's angst and intensity. Foley's reading is best at the book's climax, when Tietam Brown's life--and the storyline--spin farther out of control than any remotely sane person would expect, or predict. D.J.S.
