A lucid, shattering portrait of a life going down the tubes. Luis Blasini frankly reveals the exhilarating true story of restless years wandering south of the border in the slums of Mexico and across the United States from flop house to seedy hotel.
Blasini brings out the junkies, hoodlums, prostitutes, sexual deviants, and thieves crawling in the back alleys of the world. Transcribed from the notebooks he kept while on the road and written in a distinct, hard boiled style, Borrowed Flesh composes a tough, yet funny narrative of his adventures with drugs, homelessness and lifeless romance.
Borrowed Flesh is derisive, inventive, frankly homoerotic, comical, serious, poetic, and ineradicably American - a fast paced quirky work in which you are not permitted to laugh and yet, at times, will find yourself doing so.
My new novel titled Borrowed Flesh has just went into publication. It is a novelization of the blog and I think it turned out very well. It is written in a very beat centric style on which was a heavy influence. If you would like to own a copy, simply click the icon on the book listings to the right on this blog and enjoy!
