Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Up Nights, Daniel Kine's second book, is a classic road novel for a new generation. In raw, unrelenting prose, Kine tells the story of the complexities of human relationships when four friends embark on an existential journey through the underbelly of society. As they drift from city to city, they each struggle to connect with the disenchanted people they encounter along the way. Up Nights speaks to the reality of the human condition: the unequivocal impermanence of life.

Review:

"Up Nights is part honest reporting back to the 'straights' — what the underbelly of living a young American life is made of — and part intimate, fierce, unflinching, graphic, agonizing, confessional beauty. Not since Burroughs have I wanted to read a book and then maybe eat it alive. Daniel Kine shows us the untethered soul of the twenty-first century youth trip, designed via dream, language, image. Say hello to your uncontainable Id." Lidia Yuknavitch, author of Dora: A Headcase and A Chronology of Water
