Description
When she arrived in Los Angeles in 1994, one month after the Northridge quake and two years after the riots, both K and LA were in need of some repairs and renovations. Told through stories recalled and journals found, K's life unfolds to reveal the demons that followed her to this new city and the events that brought them to the surface. With a sense of impending tragedy, Alice Carbone's fresh take on the drug addiction novel unpacks the density of a single person's story and in doing so earns a place amongst the tortured junkies of literature. Laced with humor, tragedy, sex, and love, The Sex Girl brings forth a new and exciting literary voice.
