    DNF at 30%I m always excited to read a memoir if the subject excites me and I couldn t think of anyone who could be intriguing than a celebrity tattoo artist Unfortunately, I could almost immediately tell it wasn t for me.I went into this expecting a routine, normal sort of set up and instead found what seemed to be a story inside a story I did give it a try, but couldn t connect to anything I ended up skipping to the back and found the afterward which was captivating.I do like the idea of the creative way the memoir was told, but I was hoping for anecdotes from the chair and some history of Jonathan s career I can definitely see how people will enjoy this story, but it just didn t click for me Huge thanks to Turner Publishing and Edelweiss for providing the arc free of charge

    The long awaited book from a man I find interesting on so many levels I thought it was really well done and I look forward to reading future volumes.

    I enjoyed Jonathan Shaw s Scab Vendor , which is, at turns, like listening to a wised up old friend recount his hair raising drugs booze general madness escapades, and also like a Hemingwayesque tough guy story Not a straight ahead memoir by any means, the books shifts POV relentlessly between first person, third person and sometimes a completely different person like a whole different writer takes over at one point Throughout all the stylistic shifts, Shaw s sense of humor and appreciation for and also disdain for humanity comes through It reminded me a lot of Celine Also effective for its depiction of bygone times in thrilling cities Plus a fantastic R Crumb cover.

    solid read, if a bit disjointed the disjointed nature does serve the narrative regarding the drugs and alcohol, though, which allows for a tonality that permeates the entire book it s a solid bit of beat writing, and the stories shaw tells are involving the straight narrative is matched nicely by his contemporaneous journal entries, although shaw s fiction is a little too derivative for my tastes given that it only takes us up through his late teens and early adulthood, i look forward to the rest of the tattooist writer s journey.

    Turner Publishing Company Lan amento 21 03 2017 in dito no Brasil.O multitalentoso artista e escritor Jonathan Shaw um cone da cultura underground norte americana, filho do lend rio clarinetista e bandleader Artie Shaw e da estrela de cinema Doris Dowling, ficou mundialmente famoso por ter sido o fundador e propriet rio do Fun City Tattoo Studio em Nova York e editor da pioneira revista International Tattoo Art Magazine, tornando se amigo de artistas e m sicos famosos como Johnny Depp, Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Winter, Iggy Pop e Max Cavalera, para citar somente alguns Uma prova de sua influ ncia no meio art stico o privil gio de ter uma ilustra o de Robert Crump na capa de seu livro No entanto, apesar de ter alcan ado tamanho reconhecimento e popularidade na carreira de tatuador, abandonou tudo para se dedicar atividade de escritor em tempo integral e acumular experi ncia em viagens com sua motocicleta pela Am rica do Sul, tendo inclusive morado no Rio de Janeiro.A vida de Jonathan Shaw portanto rica em experi ncias e tamb m uma prova de sobreviv ncia ao seu passado de sexo drogas e Rock n Roll , certamente um mundo que nem sempre tem o glamour dos filmes e revistas, principalmente quando se cobrado o pre o pelos excessos com o lcool e drogas pesadas como a hero na Por sinal, o drama do autor como viciado, heran a de uma maldi o familiar que iniciou com o alcoolismo do av materno e da pr pria m e, uma parte marcante deste romance biogr fico A inf ncia em Los Angeles, sempre negligenciado pela m e, envolvida na maior parte do tempo com problemas com a bebida e relacionamentos dif ceis, n o poderia levar a outro resultado diferente do que uma adolesc ncia rebelde, em plena poca do florescimento da contracultura, drogas e amor livre Uma d cada nica em termos de express o art stica, em que se ouvia Jimi Hendrix e Jim Morrison no r dio e havia esperan a de uma sociedade alternativa, mas que terminou de forma tr gica com a pris o de Charles Manson, acusado de seis assassinatos, inclusive da atriz Sharon Tate gr vida, na mesma California que presenciou o nascimento do movimento Flower Power.No livro fica claro que Jonathan Shaw sempre se posicionou mais como um punk do que hippie , desconfiando da ingenuidade do movimento que afinal foi assimilado e digerido pelo pr prio sistema econ mico que contestava De qualquer forma, toda a agita o cultural da poca est presente no livro que tem in cio em Vera Cruz no M xico, um hotel de beira de cais onde o cigano Jonathan Shaw, um homem ent o j na meia idade, tenta lembrar os eventos do seu passado, uma esp cie de terapia na qual ele precisa enfrentar os seus pr prios fantasmas Nesta viagem interior ele pesquisa a sua ascend ncia materna e paterna para tentar descobrir as origens da maldi o que leva ao v cio Uma s rie de vozes narrativas diferentes, em primeira e terceira pessoa, fazem do romance um belo exerc cio de cria o liter ria, passagens da vida do av alco latra, por exemplo, s o descritas por textos escritos por um suposto tio do autor, Robert Smith, mas n o sabemos a exata rela o entre fic o e realidade In those streets and alleys of the port, the streets around South Street, down by the river, the sleeping ships, the small melancholy light of neon from a bar in the distance, rats and warehouses and an empty street where a solitary bum rolls along That s what my mother always called him, a dirty drunken bum And in the end he was That was his neighborhood, and whatever friends he had, that s where he could be found I tried to locate him there not long ago I asked around in places where he was known From the way he was living, and from the things said, or not said, I know my father is dead I ll never know how it happened or where The district around the docks, I guess, is as close as I ll ever get Down by the river by Robert Smith P g 187 claro que a personalidade pol mica de Jonathan Shaw e sua tumultuada vida de cigano, podem originar algum tipo de preconceito do p blico sobre o seu valor como escritor, nada mais injusto Assim como Charles Bukowski e Jack Kerouac, que tamb m foram contestados em suas devidas pocas por comportamentos pouco ortodoxos para dizer o m nimo , Shaw sabe como poucos autores contempor neos mostrar a ess ncia do homem, esmagado por uma sociedade que tenta padronizar e vender um sonho que n o pode ser igual para todos Por sinal, o autor conviveu com Bukowski quando ele ainda n o era t o famoso e escrevia uma pequena coluna em um jornal local O encontro dos dois uma das passagens divertidas do livro que cobre o per odo da inf ncia, adolesc ncia e juventude de Jonathan Shaw, at o in cio dos anos 1970, apenas o come o da sua longa jornada Uma vida como poucas, um timo livro, recomendo para as editoras brasileiras interessadas no lan amento no Brasil One fine night, a guy named Iggy Pop was playing in this hole in the wall club called Rodney s on the Sunset Strip I d never heard of him, but Ellen said we had to go to this show, so off we went, me and her and Paul The place was a cramped dark little hovel People were crowding around a stage the size of a tampon waiting for the show to start when all of a sudden this wild eyed bleached blond scarecrow came lunging out of the darkness screaming into a microphone Holding a big deadly looking knife in his other hand, he started cutting himself up and rubbing blood all over everyone Forgotten Boy P g 317
