I loved this book. It's not for everyone; it is grim in parts and weaves drugs and mindless sex throughout the story. Eric Bogosian is a terrific writer. Many of the passages, descriptions and metaphors display such creative brilliance that for once I wish I had read the book rather than listened to it.

This is a novel about trying and failing. I'm not referring to the characters here - I'm referring to the author. Bogosian principally tries hard to imagine the life of a rags to riches to ruin farm girl turned model (discovered homeless! bright lights! big city! drugs! beaches! drugs! meaningless sex! drugs!) and the mid-life crisis of a married doctor with two kids much given to annoying inner dialog (I'm good! I'm bad! I'm a jerk! She loves me! Sho loves me not!) she has an affair with.
Not for me, anyway. Jaklak sez check it out if you're into this kind of thing. Otherwise, keep walking.
