Los Angeles, or American Pharaohs
Robert, an independent filmmaker in Los Angeles, is hearing voices in his head. Alice Hershlug is slowly torturing him via The Grapevine, a kind of mental telephone.
Hoovey Weinerschniztel, a movie producer in New York City, is blasé about his recent rape and imprisonment of one of his employees.
Part political diatribe, part philosophical essay, part picaresque, this novel is dynamite.
