Set against a backdrop of New York City in the grungy, glittering 1980s, Get Off is a memoir about desperate living, hidden promise, double lives, and the danger of getting too much too soon. This eloquent, entertaining, sometimes absurdly hilarious book is a tale of how an anxious theater nerd from Long Island created and ultimately emerged from a hell of his own making.
Written as a testament for his young son, Scott Alderman's account of his wasted youth and hard-earned manhood will resonate with and inspire anyone who has been lost and struggled to find their way back.
"This is the voice of a natch'l born raconteur with the courage to venture to the darkest spaces of the human heart with uncanny compassion and deep honesty."
- Oliver Trager, Author of Dig Infinity!
NEW BOOK COMING SOON
Brace yourself for a roller coaster metal thrill ride as you join the Tattoo the Earth 2000 tour of America, the hardest, sickest tour ever. Featuring twenty of metal’s fiercest bands, including Metallica, Slipknot, Slayer, Sepultura, and Sevendust, plus Paul Booth, Filip Leu, and the world’s best tattoo artists, the Tattoo the Earth tour literally left its mark. This renegade group of outsiders played eighteen scorched-earth shows across the US in the summer of 2000, pissing off the wrong music business heavyweights, but leaving delirous inked fans in its wake. Metal and tattooing have never been the same, and Caravan of Pain puts you right in the middle of the insanity.
