Crime. Addiction. Poverty. Gambling. Violence. Teenage runaways.


It's a comedy.

Good Luck, Mr. Gorsky, the first novel by 3-time Emmy Award winning comedian Dave Konig, is The Bowery Boys on speed in the wild, wild West Side of New York City of the early 1980s; cheap single-room occupancy hotels, crime, and Times Square sleaze. A more innocent time.

Three teenage runaways - naive Danny Fisher, street savvy Bobby Boyd, and Bobby's delusional artist brother James Boyd - form a wildly dysfunctional familial bond.


They dream, plot, and scheme to escape their misfit world through crime (a poorly planned robbery of valuable comic books), art (James is convinced his unsuccessful career as a graffiti artist will propel him to Hollywood fame), and a little help from a clown's car full of deposed Ping-Pong champions, fat junkies, washed-up boxers, midgets, aging Nazis, and enigmatic movie stars.
