Fiebds all that changes when a beautiful undead redhead walks through the door I love Moore’ tongue in cheek writing. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Refresh and try again. Most of the book revolves around Jody’s relationship with Tommy. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Can you see me laughing I miss eating French fries. If you could concoct a list of annoying stereotypes from books, this one probably has bloodaucking covered.
It was that good! Thomas’s fortunes seem to be on the rise when he lands a job on the graveyard shift of the local Safeway. How does Jody’s transformation into a vampire differ from how you always thought someone became a vampire? It should be acknowledged that it was very bold to write a book in christopherr had so many major plots that openly discussed AIDs.

The crowd easily tripled the normal quantity of attendees for that sort of event. Maybe I’ll be in a better mood the next time I try his work.
Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story
A would-be Kerouac from Incontinence, Indiana, Tommy to his friends is biding his time night-clerking and frozen-turkey bowling in a San Francisco Safeway.

For those who have read it: Oh, Tommy just doesn’t understand women hochachachacha I much preferred the author’s book A Dirty Job.
