Harmony Korine burst onto the scene with his screenplay for Kids - a film so gritty and unsettling in its depiction of teenage sex that it was almost banned in the UK.

Now, in this first book of fictional set pieces, Korine captures the fragmented moments of a life observed through the demented lens of media, TV, and teen obsession. Korine reinvents the novel in this highly experimental montage of scenes that seem both real and surreal at the same time. With a filmmaker's eye and a prankster's glee, thi
Harmony Korine is the director of the films Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy, Mister Lonely, Spring Breakers, and Trash Humpers, as well as music videos for artists such as Cat Power, Sonic Youth, and Will Oldham. He was the writer of the film Kids. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
