Unknown Press is publishing Duke and Jill by Ron Kolm before summer hits. If anyone would like an ARC, contact me.
The book is about two midwestern kids who crash land in late 70s NYC and inhabit a Lower East Side of Manhattan that is burning down every night. They bounce like pinballs through the ashes, encountering punks, art scene absurdists, pick pockets, hookers, police .. and they do it in style, high off their asses.
Part comedic misadventure, part love story as map to a city that no longer exists. Fun times.
