9781849821513: Johnny Future

Turning thirty with zero dollars in the bank, no job nor prospects, sipping NyQuil and staring at the Los Angeles sky, at space, at nothing and everything—Johnny Future’s cool with that. He knows he must do something in this life, but he doesn’t know what. His grandmother, the only mother he’s ever known, is stuck in a nursing home somewhere. He hasn’t seen her in years. Inanimate objects, exterminator icons, street signs are all talking to him, telling him he’s got problems. He’s messed up, sure, but he’s gonna do something about it. He’s gonna get deep and go right to it. Self-styled “poem writer” of the L.A. vernacular, lover of all that exists, hopelessly unrepentant—because he doesn’t even know what that means—Johnny Future tells us about his world, his Hollywood, his Los Angeles, his struggle, and our future.

Steve Abee taps the well of broken hope and tattered heroism that sits beneath his nihilistic generation, transforming it into a heartening, hypersexual, punch-drunk tour de force ushering the drug narrative into the new American century.

Product Description:

Johnny Future, lover of all that exists, hopelessly unrepentant and quixotic, knows that life is calling him. He can feel it, man. Inanimate objects, exterminator icons, street signs are all talking to him, telling him he’s a loser.

His grandmother, Dolly Flowers, the only mother he has ever known, is in a nursing home. He hasn’t seen her since she got sick, but with a stolen car and a prostitute named America in tow, Johnny’s adventure to save her from death takes him from the slums of Hollywood to a wild freeway chase with the LAPD to the doorstep of fate.

Steve Abee taps the well of broken hope and tattered heroism that sits beneath his nihilistic generation. A heartening, hypersexual, punch-drunk tour de force, Johnny Future ushers the drug narrative into the new American century.

About the Author:

Steve Abee began writing when he held a job as an orderly at St. John's hospital in Santa Monica. His mind started to unfold itself and he thought if he was going to save it, he better start writing things down. Abee has previously published two books, King Planet and The Bus: Cosmic Ejaculations of the Daily Mind in Transit. He teaches middle school English and lives on the eastern-most edge of Los Angeles with his wife and two daughters.
