Spent Nation is my first novel. I wrote it in 1993. Louis Malle, the French film director, wrote me a personal note of support. It's what grunge looked like from the inside, I suppose. I have stayed true to the original vision. Spent Nation is road trip across the corpse of a nation. The incoherent voice reflects the incomprehensible land. This is a novel of spelling, grammatical and plot horrors.
