Andrea Lambert’s new novel, Neon Hysteric (Lost Angelene Books: 2020) is out now!

2004. San Francisco noir. Sequel to Jet Set Desolate. A graceful yet spiraling descent into the world of the lost. The broken. The past. An investigation of boundaries.  Read it on iBooks.

This is Howl revisited, the best minds of the generation (God help us if they really are the best…) sealing their own fate across a detonated, bombed out landscape of needles, semen, blood, shit, skin, and smashed up chemical relationships, the dumb spoil of the rejected working out their ethical response to a Word-God that first rejected them, deep down, in the belly hole of shadows and disgust.
