Slow Burn on Riverside by Chad Lutzke
"Nobody writes about broken people like Chad Lutzke. Jex and his less than merry band of stoners drift through life, wasting time and getting wasted. Roommates turn into inmates from an asylum (figuratively), cougars devour the young, minds are broken" Read more of this review »

“That if I looked at a mountain with fear in my gut, I’d race toward it and climb that bitch to the top.”
Chad Lutzke, Skullface Boy

“I didn’t want to shorten my stay. I wanted to live there, carve out a bed in the shelves and read my life away, wear the cologne of aging pages. The place made Hermosa Beach feel like a plan B.”
Chad Lutzke, Skullface Boy

“Maybe we’re all just stepping stones for each other. We’re all helping somebody get somewhere. From here to a better there.”
Chad Lutzke, The Same Deep Water as You
