Overview

Bucky Wunderlick, rock star and budding messiah, has hit a spiritual wall. In mid-tour he bolts fromhis band to hole up in a dingy East Village apartment and separate himself from the paranoid machine that propels the culture he has helped create. As faithful fans await messages, Bucky encounters every sort of roiling farce he is trying to escape. A penetrating look at rock and roll’s merger of art, commerce and urban decay, Great Jones Street “reflects our era’s nighmares and hallucinations with all appropriate lurid, tawdry shades” –The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Praise

“Brilliant…deeply shocking…looks at rock music, nihilism and urban decay.” –Diane Johnson, The New York Review of Books

“Luminous…finally, a novel that understands rock and roll!” –Jon Pareles, The Village Voice Literary Supplement
