At Night She Cries, While He Rides His Steed is a side-splitting satire that perfectly parodies romance novels and western dramas.
Our hero, Saint James Street James is a tall, extremely muscular, 32-year-old man whose attributes and possessions include a mind stronger than Socrates on acid, a magnificent horse he loves more than anything in the world, a package so large that it requires a signature, a beautiful, passionate wife with a rack so perfect it belongs on a billiard table, a ton of children, and his own personal gold mine. His life, set in 1849 against the backdrop of the California Gold Rush, is one long parade of amazing sex, dynamite montages, whiskey, and explosive gunfights. The kinds of things men could do when men were actually men. He is the richest man in town—equal parts loved and feared by all. But when the Schläger Brothers come to town, so too comes the end of the good times. St. James is forced to defend everything that matters to him (including, but not limited to: prostitutes, his horse, money, and drugs. Oh, and his wife and children too, sort of). God help anyone who stands in his way.

I have been hearing about this book for a couple of months while listening to The Drinkin' Bros Podcast. I finally sacked up and ordered the greatest piece of literary work since the Magna Carta and I was not disappointed. I don't read books often as I am an active person who enjoys doing things and not sitting around so it's hard for me to enjoy a novel. I read this book in one day while sitting through my college classes. Who needs lectures when you have gold mines, shoot outs, opium dens and prostitutes? Did I forget to mention the best squirrel di there is? Needless to say this is incredibly entertaining and I am certain dome of my classmates will be buying the book as my ethics professor caught me and asked me to "read an excerpt from the text that is more important than that which the school has provided."
The very next sentence was, ' you give these whores an inch, they want the other seven.'
I'd recommend the hardback edition, since it contains really excellent illustrations and cover art that are worth experiencing in person.
I first heard about this book when I read an interview in Vice Magazine with author Ross Patterson. He claimed that the novel harkens back to a time when men were men, and that we can learn a thing or two from the ways of our forefathers. I decided to pick it up and see what sort of valuable insights it might contain. What I got was an action fest of sex and gore, with a surprising amount of narrative depth and humor thrown in for good measure.
The novel takes place in the mid-1800s and follows Saint James Street James on a roller coaster of fortunes. From being the richest, most badass guy in town to the most down-and-out, St. James takes it all in his manly stride. At first I was worried that the novel would be an unapologetic, Tucker Max-esque douche parade, but St. James' narration evolves with surprising depth. He gives us...
This review will pale in caparison, to how this book made me feel. There was 10000 tiny nukes filled will America and Large Breasted American women bursting in my heart. What pray tell were they doing? They were making sweet sweet love it with the knowledge they were dropping. Much like the Fat Man and Little Boy they dropped on Hiroshima. There was much rejoicing as this book devoured me with its visual writing that St James St James was delivering. As if he penned it with ink made from bald eagles blood and parts of his semen. One can see why that this book is the Crown jewel in the Congressional Library and they only use it for special occasions when inaugurating the President of the United States. (Not for those Pussy Presidents) Drinking Lead Slingers and reading this book in silkies is as close as you can get to how St James St James wants you to feel on his worst day. Reading this book dropped my sons voice 5 octaves and his beard is coming in nicely because of it (even though...
