Hamptons Beach Read Of The Day: Diary Of An Oxygen Thief

by CARSON GRIFFITH · July 16, 2009

There's something about the name Holden Caulfield, apparently. Everyone knows it made for a legendary character in Catcher In The Rye, but here, in the semi-autographically Diary Of An Oxygen Thief, it makes for an alcoholic, love-blinded and irresistible one. But don't get them confused - they are two entirely different characters, that share nothing but a name and a lack of direction.

In Diary Of An Oxygen Thief, by Anonymous (Author), NLVI (Editor), None (Illustrator), the book is basically about "hurt people hurting people". But we swear it's not as much of a downer as it sounds - just honest, hilarious, and heartrending. [Beach Reading]
