Publisher Description

Twisting the buddy cop story upside down and inside out, Penn Jillette has created the most distinctive narrator to come along in fiction in many years: a sock monkey called Dickie. The sock monkey belongs to a New York City police diver who discovers the body of an old lover in the murky waters of the Hudson River and sets off with her best friend to find her killer. The story of their quest swerves and veers, takes off into philosophical riffs, occasionally stops to tell a side story, and references a treasure trove of 1970's and 1980's pop culture.

Sock is a surprising, intense, fascinating piece of work.

Ricky Vas ,

Excellent book

Superb read. Jillete twists and contorts the English language and puts forward thought provoking views on religion and faith as a backdrop for a very engaging crime novel. Really, really good stuff. I highly recommend this book.

One of the best

I could not put it down. Penn has out done himself with this book. The song lyrics, humor, the commentaries, and view points were all woven together ............ Ah, forget all the BS, if you can't handle full freedom of expression and are easily offended by an elegant use of language that surpasses even the great Al Swearengen then you shouldn't, or better yet, deserve to read this book. Anal Rape? You had the stones to title a chapter Anal Rape.........classic!
