The King and I BOOK

Taking the piss out of the so-called Catcher in the Rye cult, the Mr. T Experience’s Dr. Frank, operating under the more professional-sounding Frank Portman, has unleashed one exciting piece of young adult fiction with his first novel, King Dork. While Portman’s musical activities have gone largely ignored for the past 20 years, his foray into literature has brought him new levels of attention, and for very good reason. Clever, dark, and funny as hell, King Dork is ideal reading for anyone who had even the slightest trouble fitting in high school, While the book is geared specifically towards the ambiguous young adult demographic, the layered musical and literary references make for compelling reading for kick-around kids of any age.
