Austin Nights Kindle Edition
-- Noah Cicero, author of The Human War
"Can I liken this work to anything else I have read? No . . . not really. Although at times the shimmering image of Jack Kerouac managed to invade, he was overhauled and superseded by this new and vital presence in the ranks of writing excellence."
-- Stacey Danson, author of Empty Chairs
"An interesting read no matter how you slice it."
"'Austin Nights' is one of the sincerest Valentines one can give a city. Thestory is fragment, beautiful, like little rays of light."
-- Beach Sloth, author of I want to YouTube down the Rivers of America
"Powered by a rich kind of nonlinear anti-narrative, Davidson weaves andcajoles us into believing that reality can be fiction and fictionreality, but more importantly, to stop looking for the border thatdivides the two."
-- Black Heart Magazine
-- Scott McClanahan, author of Crapalachia
From the Back Cover
-- The Next Best Book Blog
"The story is easy to follow and uses many tools of narrativeprogression, even mixing method and mode to keep the reader treadinglightly."
-- J. A. Tyler, author of Colony Collapse
"A literary Reality Bites for our generation."
-- Fawzy Zablah, author of Ciao! Miami
"'Austin Nights' is a book that defies easy description, but delivers a potent impact to the self aware reader."
-- The Word Zombie
"The reader is left face to face with each particular memory, which Davidson paints with deft, if straightforward prose."
-- Whistling Shade
"herocious masters the ebb and flow of observations referenced, set aside, referenced again."

The way the story is told, by jumping scenes through time and space works great. It was unnerving at first but then you understand, this is how we hold our memories, they are jumbled up and never recalled chronologically. It also pulls all of Michael's existence to the point in time from when this is being told. You are taken to the precipice of what you feel will be a great life for this couple. This shows brilliance on the part of the author. Well done, sir.
That said, I hesitate in giving this a five, because the work does have some faults. I found myself skipping chapters and storylines because they were uninteresting. All scenes set outside of Austin and outside the road to Austin were not needed and simply break up the flow (but perhaps this is a piece of brilliance that flew over my head, it's hard to tell with good art). The seemingly random musings on existence and the universe were not fully fleshed out and wholly unnecessary. Also I couldn't get over the authors use of the term "cancer stick." It was annoying the first time and downright ludicrous the 15th time. Just call it a cigarette
We follow along on the ride to Austin from Michael, Bridget's, The cats home town. Peek inside the mind of a writer trying to succeed. There lives are more on the reserved boring side, only a few exciting things take place.
Then we get into the things like the characters life styles and thoughts... Boring aside from them constantly drinking or smoking pot there's really nothing else that goes on.
I would not recommend nor would I purchase again.
