Format: Paperback
This novella starts out with a stripper named Coco being killed and discarded in a dumpster by a sleazy strip club owner. She awakes in what appears to be a landfill but quickly discovers that there is no end and thus begins her journey through TRASHLAND. Aided by a talking fly she travels through TRASHLAND seeking a way out or just some meaning behind it all. Coco comes across many fascinating characters including a knight dressed in a rubber tire suit, an evil Queen and if you're lucky there may even be a robot.

Now what is really important about this book is that although the plot is kind of "out there" and probably not for everyone the writing style is very crisp, clean and conveys a lot in such a short read. The use of language is exceptionally vivid and descriptive. I must warn you that things can get pretty "meaty."

Exactly as many have stated this is a grimy noir version of ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read and cannot believe this is Constance Ann Fitzgerald's first book. I anxiously await any forthcoming works from Constance in the future.

Trashland A Go-Go is about a stripper named Coco who dies, gets thrown into the dumpster by her sleazy boss, and then wakes up in a world made out of trash. It is an intense book. Constance Fitzgeralds writing is smooth and seductive and incredibly vivid. It attacks the senses. Not only does she do a great job explaining what the trash world looks like, she makes the reader really feel it and smell it. I felt kinda oily while I was reading it.
And I loved it. It was completely enchanting. And gross. I mean, it made me gag---but in a really enjoyable way. I grew up watching John Waters and I love that kind of, well, trashy humor. This book actually reminded me of his movie DESPERATE LIVING. I appreciate a writer that can do a really good gross-out tale.
This book is great. Read it.

This is such a fun read. You're hooked from the beginning with the stripper character of Coco Darling, and after her fiery "death" at the strip club (covered up by the owner who throws her in the dumpster) you're in for one really wild ride. Coco Darling wakes up bewildered in a land of trash (which she just thinks is a big landfill) and goes on a perilous adventure to find a way out of there. She runs into a talking fly, after accidentally destroying his beer-can home, and it just gets weirder from there. Especially when she meets an oracle who gives her a very strange tarot card reading on flesh. It's like Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz meets John Waters' Desperate Living, which is the perfect formula for a hilarious Bizarro Book. I read it cover to cover and never got bored. Highly recommended. It's probably the best book ever.

After a pole dance goes horribly wrong, Coco Darling is tossed into the garbage and wakes up in a land of garbage. Can she find her way home without running afoul of Queen?

Yeah, I may have unearthed the gem of the 2011-2012 New Bizarro Author series.

If the Wizard of Oz starred a stripper and took place in a land of garbage, it would be very much like Trashland A Go-Go. Coco is a strong leading lady, not waiting for some guy to come along and save her. She's also tough as hell. Could you dig your way out of a room that has walls made of dirty diapers? Yeah, me either.

Coco's journey is full of funny moments as well as disgusting ones. Imagine a woman walking across a trash-filled landscape wearing an ugly bridesmaid dress and interacting with her talking fly sidekick. The villains are vile, the trash world is utilized to its full potential, and there are parts of the book that will make you want to laugh or puke, or both at the same time. That's pretty much all I can say without giving away too much.

Trashland A Go-Go is one of those first books that you're astonished is someone's first book. The writing is polished, the pace is great, and there aren't any missteps. It's also pretty accessible for a Bizarro book. If you're looking to give the Bizarro genre a shot, you can do a hell of a lot worse than Trashland A Go-Go.

Trashland a Go Go is the most fun reading romp I've had in years. The book is descriptively engaging, lushly populated with quirky characters -- and many unpredictable twists and hairpin turns. With a story like this, I firmly believe that Hollywood will soon pick up on this one! I had to re-read passages because my eyes kept filling with tears from laughing so hard. I can only hope that the author, Constance Ann Fitzgerald, is steady at work on her next manuscript.
Don't miss picking up this terrific novella.

I've been reading Bizarro Fiction for MANY years, and like another reviewer said, it totally is a sausage-fest. When I first happened across this title, I was intrigued. After reading the first few chapters, I threw my hands up into the air and cried, "THANK (expletive) (expletive) (higher-power)!"

Constance Ann Fitzgerald brings a new voice to bizarro that is absolutely refreshing. She doesn't slack with character or setting development. Page after page, I was blown away by her attention to detail and beautifully scultped diction. If this is her first novella, then this author is going to be a powerhouse! I can't friggin' wait!

Without hesitation, I would purchase this title a thousand times over. If you like bizarro fiction, do yourself a favor and pick up this title.
