    1. Read this book before you come to New Orleans to try and fix what you think got broken by the hurricane: then maybe you can understand how it's always been broken, and the parts of it that we kind of like that way.(by kind of like I mean love, and not necessarily in a way that's good for us)


    2. Cops in New Orleans have a reputation for arresting you for anything. One of those apocryphal charges is "leaning with intent to fall," from which the book gets its name. Clark delivers a memoir in the form of a series of short stories in which certain events often overlap, but are used for different purposes. It's nonlinear storytelling, but still quite easy to follow. His tales of living in punk flophouses, breaking into abandoned spaces, working odd jobs and an aborted attempt at hitchhiking [...]


    3. Ethan lived a punk lifestyle for years, wandering from job to job and house to house amidst a wild array of colorful friends and foes. He chronicles many stories from his life here, in this short volume.He's a wonderful storyteller, and I frequently found myself literally laughing out loud at his tales (which I'm not wont to do with books). He lived for several years in New Orleans, and the stories he tells capture the spirit of the city and its hold on people quite well. Sometimes, the stories [...]


    4. Loved this! It had me dreaming about New Orleans and Asheville. Ethan writes a zine called "Chihuahua and Pitbull." This is a collection of writing about his adventures in New Orleans, and his travels to and fro, working with circus' and selling fireworks. Throwing parties on rooftops and running from the cops. Just like reading a zine, but this does have a fluid continuity that follows a timeine from 1999-2007. I love reading good punk zine writing and this is just that. I wish I could write su [...]


    5. This book got under my skin. It made me remember and miraculously miss sleeping on the side of the road, in crack houses, beaches and blackberry bushes. The abandoned buildings of my own narrative ran next to his and waved. The beers of my younger years hung out with hazy morning memories steering bicycle wheels towards records and curtains. This book made me wish I had more party parades and reckless abandon now. It made me want to raise high the youth beams (carpenters), run from cops and ring [...]


    6. When I was 14 I ran away from home with Ethan (the author), So i may be partial to him, but all in all I thought this was a great memoir, and a very quick read. If you have ever traveled or squatted than you should read this book. Ethan is extremly talented (with both art and writing) and I can't wait to see what else he will put out. This is a fast paced memoir about living in New Orleans, post hurricane Katrina; it is the story of underground New Orleans, with the beat and smells that only New [...]


    7. Ethan's new book is a really engrossing read. Nothing that happens is too fantastic. Ethan lives the life of any traveling punk kid you've ever met, hitchhiking, bike delivery, all that good stuff. What makes this stand out is the way he tells his tales. It's got that friend telling you a story quality that i really enjoy in a memoir. It's not over-romanticized, and it doesn't have 15 different versions of the same story about scamming a bus. Also, it's pretty gutsy to write a memoir when you're [...]


    8. As soon as i saw this title on bookslut, it harkened me back immediately to the old "napoleonic laws" back in the quarter. Other bogus charges trumped up against squatters in NOLA back in the late/mid 90's included "impersonation of a human being" "assault with a cheesburger" and "obstruction of the sidewalk". Definitely worth the treck to stroller-cursed, baby-haunted lincoln square to The Book Cellar to get my hands on a copy.


    9. The zine he used to make was one of my favourites This book reads like a summarizing of odd happenings. It's a rather short list of happenings with minimal description of what is going on, how the people look like, etc. Ethan doesn't write down a lot of thoughts, describings, introspect, A pity, since there are so many shenanigans, and odd things in his surroundings to write about.


    10. This memoir will make you miss traveling and drinking too much.ahhhh the good old days!!!!!!! (hey ethan- at least you didn't end up sleeping in an alley in this memoir, maybe you should write about philly next!)


    11. Really cool little book about the underground punk scene, living in new orleans, and the weirdest coming of age story you'll find.
