As an author who blends humor with social criticism, I was interested in Jones’s early work of fiction (he wrote about 25 non-fiction works).
Just paroled waiter Rollo Hemphill is a 20-year-old from Los Angeles who is both disgusted and intrigued by celebrities whose cars park at a five-star hotel. In an effort to inspire jealousy in the girl of his dreams of him, he creates – and makes headlines with – a lifelike blow-up doll that personifies an elderly but sexy actress staying in a hotel.
Instead of backfiring, Rollo’s ploy gets him his dream job, endless money and alcohol, and a contract as a treat for the actress, Ms. Monica LaMonica, whose breasts are almost as sassy as her ego. The following is a hilarious game involving silicone and superhero underwear; the cast of characters ranges from a Hungarian delivery boy to a celebrity couple in a Winnebago.
While it’s a bit pathetic at first, I found myself cheering for Rollo, who embarks on this adventure in the interest of putting himself in the shoes of a beautician. (Haven’t we all had that urge? Regular pedicures will work wonders for any relationship.)
A hilarious read, My Bouncy Friend is also a clever look at celebrity culture, as well as American intrigues with the famous and infamous.
Let me warn you in advance, however, that the only guy who sees action in this book is the blow-up doll partner, but that’s not who you think.
