This is a sequel to Hack’s boxing novel “Jonny Knockout.” Like all boxing sequels, it has exactly the same story as the original with a slightly different ending.
Hack saw a story on his local news about this teenage “trend” and he was shocked at repercussions to society, so he spent the next month hanging out in parks and playgrounds hula-hooping in the buff to research this book. It was only after its publication (and he had been put on the national register of sex offenders) that he realized that nobody was doing nude hula-hooping and that the station televised articles on similar made up “teenage trends” about once a week to scare paranoid parents into watching.
Hack wrote this after watching the cult classic “Roller Boogie” with Linda Blair.
Sadly, he watched it in 2010 so sales weren’t exactly through the roof.
Hack’s friend Eddie Frierson (see Mayonnaise is Nonsense) is an actor famous for a one-man show he performs about 16th century baseball player Christy Mathewson. When Frierson snubbed his nose at the coronavirus scare and performed the play in Los Angeles, Hack wrote this novel in tribute.
