High Life (Little House on the Bowery) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

High Life is perhaps the greatest neglected masterpiece of true noir. I’ve never read anything like this, nor do I expect to.”—Ken Bruen, author of The Guards

“Stokoe’s in-your-face prose and raw, unnerving scenes give way to a skillfully plotted tale that will keep readers glued to the page.”—Publishers Weekly

With a new introduction by Dennis Cooper, High Life shows Matthew Stokoe to be a worthy heir to the great tradition of California noir. High Life is an unholy hybrid of Raymond Chandler’s best work and Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho.

Matthew Stokoe was born in England and is currently living in the Southern Hemisphere. His acclaimed first novel, Cows, was published by Creation Books in 1999.

Synopsis:

A cult classic--visceral LA noir--that sells for $51 on Amazon (check it)!

Synopsis:

Fiction. Stokoe's novel takes place in Hollywood, the City of Dreams. Jack had come here with one ambition: to become a star, by any means. He wanted to be like the people in the tabloids: Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, Tom and Nicole. Instead, he entered a world seedier than anything he could have imagined, full of drugs and crime, whores, snuff shows, incest, deceit, and despair. With a new introduction by Dennis Cooper, HIGH LIFE shows Matthew Stokoe to be a worthy heir to the great tradition of California noir. HIGH LIFE is an unholy hybrid of Raymond Chandler's best work and Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho.
