Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

San Francisco’s underground unleashes a wild tempest of melancholy and psychodrama on an unsuspecting world. Poets, drag queens, performance artists, musicians, and strippers wander in and out of a yearlong hangover through seedy nightclubs, all-night basement parties, and unexpected revelations. The hapless narrator’s evolving relationship with a serious girlfriend combines with deep self-understanding and pain to reveal something true amid the chaos.

Synopsis:

In this uproarious novel, ridiculous characters emerge from San Francisco's countercultural underground to unleash their melancholy psychodrama on an unsuspecting world. Poets and vampires, drag queens and performance artists, musicians and strippers commingle throughout a yearlong hangover. Where will it end? Is there a 12-step program for these extreme cases? Already touted in Publishers Weekly as part of the emerging "dick lit" trend, Longhi's ability to render distinctly memorable characters and zero in on subterranean absurdity makes this a rollicking urban ride.

Synopsis:

A novel of subterranean absurdity which will keep the reader laughing throughout.
