I have been trying to get a copy of this book for the past couple weeks and finally my homie Dan Kennedy was kind enough to send me a PDF with the whole book. I have known Dan for a couple years now from the local music scene in Michigan. He is a very talented guitar player, singer and song writer. If you ever get a chance to hit up one of his shows do yourself a favor and go out he might even cover “remix to ignition” by R. Kelly, my personal favorite.
His latest endeavor is a novel titled “Fuming At The Sheep”. This book from the get go is unmistakeably written by a lyricist. The wordplay and imagery are outstanding. In the opening chapter you have a very descriptive scene where the main character Kyle is contemplating his future and what he will tell his parents about the decision he has made to not use his degree on his life’s journey. This story is to be read keeping in mind the confusion of a 20 something year old. Without giving away to much of the story I will say this, Kyle meets many colorful characters. Working as a bartender he has encounters with just about every walk of life imaginable and this factor is expounded upon throughout his self discovery. I would highly recommend this book for any person at a transitional stage in their life. I thought the ending was extremely creative and was impressed by the skill applied in order to tie everything together. Overall I was very surprised by Dans work on this story and hope he continues writing novels. If you would like to purchase this book it can be found at amazon.com or his record labels site 54amrecords.com.
