Cherry by Nico Walker
"I have a lot in common with Nico Walker, author of the recently released debut novel, Cherry. We both partied too hard and failed out of college in the early 2000’s, both then enlisting in the wartime army at twenty years old. After basic training..." Read more of this review »

Arctic Smoke by Randy Nikkel  Schroeder
"A wildly imaginative and original story, Arctic Smoke is like nothing else I've ever read. Wonderful, weird characters on a surreal quest that spans provinces, this hallucinogenic ode to the good-old and not-so-good-old days of 1990s Canada is a t..." Read more of this review »

Philip Elliott, The Impending Heat Death of the Universe & Other Things That Stop Me from Caring

“You're not done with L.A. until L.A. is done with you.”
Philip Elliott, Nobody Move

“We’re all just waiting for our moment to redeem ourselves.”
Philip Elliott, Hunger & Hallelujahs

“Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.”
Charles Bukowski

“This was the Mecca of the American Dream, the world that everyone wanted. A world of sleek young women (allied with Slenderella to be so) in shorts and halters, driving 400-horsepower station wagons to air-conditioned, music-serenaded supermarkets of baby-sitter corporations and culture condensed into Great Books discussion groups. A life of barbecues by the swimming pool and drive in movies open all year. It did't appeal to me. Fuck health insurance plans and life insurance. They wanted to live without leaving the womb. It made me more alive to play a game without rules against society, and I was prepared to play it to the end. A tremor almost sexual passed through me as I anticipated the comming robbery.”
Edward Bunker, No Beast So Fierce

“I’d been staying at the Holiday Inn with my girlfriend, honestly the most beautiful woman I’d even known, for three days under a phony name, shooting heroin. We made love in the bed, ate steaks at the restaurant, shot up in the john, puked, cried, accused one another, begged of one another, forgave, promised, and carried one another to heaven.”
Denis Johnson, Jesus' Son
