Punk Rocker and petty outlaw Max Sutton is more afraid of love than the law. Prowling for new kicks and the next big hit on this absurdist romp through the underbelly of 21st century America, Max flees from the dive bars of Pittsburgh to the steamy beaches of Rio to escape the shackles of the state-or his own jaded heart.
This superb slice of pulp-y brilliance follows the wild misadventures of Max Sutton, lead singer of the hardcore punk group BE! It's a thoughtful romp through Max's many dilemas about 'growing up', traversing through friendships, love and infatuation and of course MUSIC...It's a rip-roaring read which takes in familiar 'pulp' themes of drugs, crime and sex but it's the deep, relatable philosophy and the fact Max is so well written as a character that draws you in. I couldn't put it down and this has future cult classic written all over it! (Matt Bradshaw)
