Cosmic Banditos with John Cusack, In Search of Captain Zero with Sean Penn. The bizarre repercussions of these deals - and how they contribute my status as an angst-ridden fool - are a through-line in Can't You Get Along With Anyone?

"Can't You Get Along With Anyone? is a vividly confrontational must-read for anyone who has friends in jail or in the movie or record businesses."
