Punk Elegies : True Tales of Death Trip Kids, Wrongful Sex, and Trial by Angel Dust Paperback / softback

Description

Punk Elegies arrives like a chemically unstable mixture of Richard Yates and Damon Runyon.

Set along Hollywood Boulevard at the birth of punk and the death of the seventies, the thirty-three melancholic, comic laments of Punk Elegies are a mesmerizing concoction of delusion and revelation.

A cultural moment, a marriage, and one young man's mind and soul spiral through a series of boundless possibilities and arrive at a harrowing finality.

In the end, on the spin cycle of destiny, MacDonell circles alone, naked and bewildered in the labyrinth of a pre-AIDS bathhouse inferno.

The first sunrise of the rest of his life dares him to step outside.
