Books by Mike Avitabile

A Rum Truck

In the spring of 2007, two best friends inadvertently start a popular rock band while driving a stolen delivery truck across the western United States.

In this standout debut, Avitabile's voice is sharp, funny, and undeniable. Introducing himself to the world through this rum-soaked tale of irresponsibility, he offers a witty, honest depiction of the spoils of Internet fame, a love of live music, and a view into a life spent wandering.

The Whale in the Cave

Deep in a private Malibu forest lies a cave. And in that cave, is . . . well, it depends who you ask. And how much weed you have on you.

Equal parts existential and absurd, The Whale in the Cave follows the laugh-filled journey of a charmingly clueless stoner on a quest to find meaning in the unlikeliest of places.

The Whale in the Crib

Did you want to read The Whale in the Cave but were intimidated by the sheer volume of words and the stunning lack of pictures? Well, rest your worries aside! The children's picture book adaptation is now here!

Follow Luke and Wolf as they explore the possibility of a secret portal hidden in a mysterious crib.


Still funny! Just not as inappropriate.
