Tietam Brown by Mick Foley

I picked up a copy of Mick's latest book at a book signing last night here in Va. Just thought I would start a thread to see if anyone else has picked this up yet or has any good stories from other signing he is doing. It was pretty fun to listen to Mick read from the pick and toss in an Al Snow joke or two. So far I find the book to be quite good but I will wait till I am finished for a full review.

I was wondering if this is another nonfiction book from Mick. I loved his previous two nonfiction books, and would love to read another.

If anyone cares, I read this book last week. I went through it fairly quickly. The characters and situations are all over-the-top. It's set in a high school during the 80s. I found myself let down by the final act. More Andy Brown in the future would be nice. This book won't win the Pulitzer Prize. Mick Foley isn't a craftsman of the English language -- not that this is poorly written. He's just a good storyteller and thats why I found this a satisfying read for the most part.

I have not read either of his previous books and I stopped watching wrestling years ago. I just think this is good fiction.
