The radio cabaret style performance of this award-winning book features Eric Bogosian, The Daily Show's Demetri Martin, Tommy Ramone, writer/performer Jonathan Ames, bestselling writers Gary Shteyngart, Arthur Phillips, and Darin Strauss and Pulitzer-Prize winner Samantha Power. With music by One Ring Zero.

Winner of Borders Original Voices Book of the Year and a New York Times Editors' Choice, Ballad of the Whiskey Robber tells the hilarious and improbable true story of Attila Ambrus, the Robin Hood of Eastern Europe. He's the onetime pelt smugger, goaltender (possibly the worst in the history of pro hockey), pen salesman, Zamboni driver, gravedigger, church painter, roulette addict, building superintendent, whiskey drinker, and native of Transylvania who's decided that the best thing to do with his time is to rob as many banks as possible.

Welcome to Julian Rubinstein's uproariously funny and unforgettable account of crime in the heart of the new Europe. Part Unbearable Lightness of Being, part Pink Panther, and part Slap Shot, Rubinstein's tale is a spectacular literary debut - and a story so outrageous that it could only be true.

    " This story was so seriously crazy. I absolutely loved it. "

    " Well written book mixing sports to a small degree and the messiness of changing political philosophies. "

    " Fantastic. Hockey, whiskey, thievery, pelt-smuggling... and all based on a true story! Big-time page turner, highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Rob Schoenbach | 2/8/2014

    " This is such a story. You can practically see it as a movie as you read it. I picked it up b/c I was in the mood for something involving hockey but the book is so much more. Rooting for the bank robbing anti-hero and his schemes is really fun in this one. "
