For most of his teenage years and young adulthood, Luke was trapped in a drug-induced hellscape, without parental guidance or any clear path out of darkness. Now that he is a father, while the incessant urge to escape reality still threatens to do him in once and for all, he realizes he must become the parent that he always wanted and needed for himself.
A story of love and hope, loss and redemption, SANCTUARY tells the story of a young man who discovers, in the course of becoming a father, just how important it is to love not only those who depend on him, but also to love and accept himself. This is a novel that unravels the hidden layers of the true nature of care, compassion, love and sanctuary. We find it where we can. We are given it only when we need it most.
The long-awaited follow-up to the acclaimed modern cult classic FUTUREPROOF, N. Frank Daniels’ SANCTUARY will once again leave readers breathless and hungering for more….
"Characters speak with a deadpan, politically incorrect Voltaire-meets-Faulkner-on-dope delivery that renders the novel at once uncompromising and irresistible. And the prose is like razor-wire dipped in laughing gas and acid. The author has already earned himself a cult following. My gut is, that audience is about to explode. Be the first on your block to glimpse the future of American fiction - if not the future of America. Lock the doors, load your guns, and let N. Frank Daniels take you straight to a hell you can believe in."
--Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight
"Harrowing, gripping, starkly original..."
--New York Press
"N. Frank Daniels has one of the freshest and most original voices I’ve encountered in years. He manages to strike an improbable balance between jaded and vulnerable. The fierceness of his vision coexists with a leavening humor that I find irresistible. N Frank Daniels has reinvented the coming of age novel, darkly…"
--Jay McInerney, bestselling author of Bright Lights, Big City and The Good Life
"N.Frank Daniels always gives the exciting impression of being on the brink of disaster. Jaunty and murderous, he bobs up irrepressibly from every disaster, as unkillable as hope. Full of bite, surprise and attack."
--Sebastian Horsley, crazy punk artist and author of Dandy In the Underworld
"N. Frank Daniels is that rare thing -- he's funny and smart (the rarest combination these or any days) and he writes with so much gusto and charm, you can't help but want to spend a lot of your time with him.”
--Darin Strauss, best-selling author of Chang & Eng and More Than It Hurts You
"Bludgeons the reader like the best of William Burroughs and Jim Carroll."
--Dan Pope, author of In the Cherry Tree
"Daniels’ work is raw, sprawling and brave. "
--Samantha Dunn, author of Not By Accident and Faith In Carlos Gomez
"With characters at once unique and universal, Daniels’ depth of passion for them rubs off onto your fingers and seeps into your bloodstream. A good high."
--Josh Kilmer-Purcell, bestselling author of I Am Not Myself These Days and Candy Everybody Wants
