Though this schizophrenic first novel covers some interesting turf, it is by no means a smooth debut. Author Resnick shifts from first to second to third person and back in the turn of a page, frequently writes in half-sentences, and neatly describes but never seems to look very far beneath the surface of her eccentric characters. Perhaps such fits and starts are merely a by-product of depicting the over-stimulated, over-suntanned, and over-sensationalized City of Angels. In the end, L.A. remains a place where a night at a cocktail party for a friend of a friend of Madonna will always melt into "another bodacious orgiastic day in the California sun, where depression is outlawed (or heavily medicated) and sex is superficial, flagrant, and mondo delicto." --Maria Dolan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Sure it may be a bit amaturish, even a little jumpy at times. But it made me laugh, it even inspired me to write again. Read morePublished on December 18, 1999 by firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a typical, old-fashioned, Victor Hugo-type reader, in other words I like plot and linear narrative -- but in spite of their absence or because of it, Rachel Rasnick creates a... Read morePublished on May 29, 1999
