Junkyard Lucy is a collection of stories by underground writer Tony Nesca. Stylistically alternating between Nesca’s unique free-flow style, full of an incredible, rhythmic prose, and street-tough, short declarative sentences, the writing offers an incredible range.
The themes are varied and widespread—from love, sex, music, death, old age, and rebellious youth, Junkyard Lucy is a subversive celebration of being alive, a romantic, sexually charged discourse on life, unfettered and free.
Here are just a few reasons your customers will want to buy Junkyard Lucy and you will want to stock the book:
Most books recycle the same-old formulaic concepts that don’t keep readers engaged. Tony Nesca is waging war on this stagnant mediocrity and embarking on artistic freedoms that
have Hunter S. Thompson posthumously smiling.
Junkyard Lucy features a white-heat stream of urban consciousness that will fascinate your customers who love an unusual style and a challenging story.
Anyone interested in teenage angst, sexual exploration, or rock n’ roll rebellion will fall under Nesca’s spell.
For those readers who favor word music, the words in this book cascade down the page in a waterfall of ideas and events.
For your customers that savor the indie zine scene, Nesca’s work resonates in a big way.
“It takes a writer like Nesca, who is not seduced by the trappings of modernity, to hit upon the crucial questions of our time, and display our modern condition in a truthful, sane light.” — Ted Prokash, novelist
