Crackup at the Race Riots, Paperback Book

Crackup at the Race Riots Paperback


Harmony Korine burst onto the scene with his screenplay for Kids - a film so gritty and unsettling in its depiction of teenage sex that it was almost banned in the UK.

A Crackup at the Race Riots is similarly controversial.

The novel is without plot, linear narrative, character development or scene setting.

In other words, it is totally original. The book is a montage that takes literary convention and explodes it in a sequence of half-remembered scenes, suicide notes, dialogue fragments, movie ideas, rumours and jokes.

Korine captures the fragmented moments of a life observed through the demented lens of media, tv and teen obsession.

Korine's darkly bizarre imaginationhas created the ultimate post-postmodern novel - funny, offensive, depraved and sad.
