Bob Zappa is Frank Zappa's younger brother. He has just written a memoir: "Frankie and Bobby: Growing Up Zappa."

I'd given up hope on this one, first mentioned years ago. I am ready to order.

Very nice.

Quote:
FZ became interested in UFOs and necromancy, and later told Bobby mysteriously that he'd made a bargain with the devil.

That is, eh, interesting...

this book is not essential by any means; lots of stories about young frank's family life, mostly unhappy times due to the family's shaky finances, and how often they moved around the country, frank's adversarial relationship with his dad, etc. etc.

the book has a few funny parts, but the writing style is kinda choppy ... overall a depressing read
