Lambert weaves a gnarled spiderweb of drugs, lust, and excess; a devastating portrait of a young woman struggling to maintain an image of consummate glamour while slipping into utter abjection. Jet Set Desolate is smut with style, prurience with pith. For underneath the tangle of limbs and bags of powder, it is plain to see that Lena is, at her core, simply searching for a connection more meaningful than the one she has with her dealer. This is at times difficult to see beneath the veneer of disco balls and lines of coke; however, Lena is tougher than she appears. Although she is repeatedly debased and degraded, Lena demonstrates a base, animal will to survive. As the novel frenetically races toward its brutal conclusion, it is the reader who will be left clawing for more.

In the same light, parents, health care providers, counselors, friends and peers alike would find great virtue in this book in spite of its raw and sometimes brutal and even vulgar descriptions.Read more ›
