--Jay McInerney, author of Bright, Precious Days and Bright Lights, Big City
"The best of the books written thus far about Warren Zevon is Nothing's Bad Luck. C.M. Kushins follows the legendary singer/songwriter down streets mostly Californian and mean; like a good detective, he sifts through the relationships and songs left behind. What he uncovers makes for compelling reading."
--Kevin Avery, author of Everything Is an Afterthought: The Life and Writings of Paul Nelson
