Angry Nights is a novel about buried life in the darkest corner of the darkest alley in Los Angeles. And yet, for all its sense of doom, this illuminating novel is also about the force of life interrupting through the rubble of the inner-city. Manic, defeated and yet curiously determined. Angry Nights is a thoughtful picture of our postmodern zeitgeist, where the system interfaces flesh and concrete.

Angry Nights is about a world where betrayal can become a part of the structure of everyday experience. Poz and Army, best of friends, jointly imagine a murder which will make Poz $5,000. By the end of their conversation, it occurs to Poz that he now must kill Army because "I told you too much." One character hands the keys to her dead boyfriend's car to a stranger in a dark movie theater. Another shoots rats in the dark to prepare for "Zen murder" in the urban jungle.

At a time when the plight of urban America increasingly makes for grim headlines and when some have even cast the very future of our cities in doubt. Angry Nights provides a gripping account of life in the American inner-city. In prose that is terse and bristling with tension, .Angry Nights reveals a highly charged world that many of us fear, or worse, prefer to deny. Like novels such as A Clockwork Orange and Last Exit to Brooklyn, Angry Nights points to a reality we can only ignore at our peril.
