Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Raised on the streets of Brooklyn in the late 1970s, Montiel followed in the footsteps of other neighborhood hooligans, committing various violent and criminal acts. In the 1980s, he fell in love with the music scene with his band, Gutterboy, while hanging out with a variety of celebrities, including Allen Ginsberg. This memoir about the different "saints" in his life ties all this together in an erratic but amusing manner. Jason Collins manages this directionless assortment of stories magnificently. He holds to a slight Brooklyn accent for Montiel but doesn't overdo it. Flawlessly, he transitions to other characters with their own vocal quirks and delivers the more emotional moments in a somber and reminiscent tone that enhances Montiel's words.
