Inspired insanity, Tales of Crazy John by A.D. Winans is a page turning instant classic. A humorous, streetwise, stark raving joy cover-to-cover! Five out of four stars on the Richter scale.

He’s back in all his glory; Poet A.D. Winans’ zany adventurer/ madman/ religious icon, Crazy John. With his derby hat and cowboy boots, still “dreaming the impossible,” Crazy John is once again in and out of jails, churches and even heads for Australia for awhile . The mad eyes of A.D. Winans’ memorable prankster poet can still light up the night with his flaming eyes and even manages to get himself nominated for sainthood. San Francisco’s beloved poet takes us for a wild ride in this book which includes both the first two chapbooks of Crazy John poems plus a brand new “final volume” of Crazy John’s adventures. Like the graffiti Crazy John loves, for a good time call Crazy John and A.D. Winans. Pure fun from a legendary poet. Enjoy.
