David Louden is the author of the roman á clef neo-beat novels LOST ANGELES & BONE IDOL [bohn ahyd-l] chronicling the life of his alter-ego Doug Morgan. His major influences have been cited as Charles Bukowski, John Fante and William S. Burroughs. Reoccurring themes in his work include alcohol & drug abuse, death, sex and catholicism.
From his early adventure filled days in Poleglass through to the alcohol induced haze of his early twenties Doug's life (much like the city) is one at conflict with itself. BONE IDOL is filled with humour, sex, guilt and the shameful dream of a boy wanting to create more than a family of haunted heirs.
