Front Cover
Cool Grove Press, Jan 1, 2002 - Humor - 290 pages
Fiction. In a manic romp through America's maddest metropolis, screenwriter Kevin Bartelme's O'ROURKE chronicles the hilarious escapades and misadventures of tile-setters Robert O'Rourke and his assistant Maurice. Bartelme guides the two craftsmen through a series of wild vignettes wherein they encounter a whole panoply of characters who variously amuse, entertain, and occasionally torment them as they ply their trade everywhere from the sewer to the penthouse. As craftsmen, they are obliged to maintain certain standards, but their clients keep getting in the way with their loony designs, goofy histrionics and plain bad taste. O'ROURKE is a non-stop farce with an edge, bound to delight anyone who has actually managed to maintain a sense of humor.
