Author Danny Monosson will speak and sign copies of his new book, Revenge of the Cheesesteak.
“Revenge of the Cheesesteak” crashes into the literary world and your psyche with a tale of golf, poker, brawling, horse racing and above all, friendship. Raucous, provocative and side-splittingly funny, this is “The Godfather meets Caddyshack” on steroids.
Philip Cheesesteak is the legendary and extremely successful Food King of Long Island. Bot on his annual guys golf trip, as the leader of Team Cheesesteak in the Gold Gang War, success on the links seems to elude him. The golf tournament provides the setting but the insane characters are what move the story. Successful middle-aged guys by day, when with their friends they bluntly spit out whatever vile, offensive thoughts they have on women, life, religion, and more. And yet they are surprised to find themselves in some ridiculous situations: embroiled in a casino brawl with a twenty-something poker poser, peeing on a friend’s head to save his life, storming a Country Club Board meeting and wreaking havoc over the Ladies Locker Room, creating a fantasy connection with a racehorse they think will bring them a windfall. The reader ends up rooting for all of them, like they’ve become your own brothers. Which is the point. A winner is crowned at the end of the Golf Gang War but the real story is about the brotherhood of friendship.
