Description

The Serotonin Grand Prix is a volatile race through the paranoid mind of Marko, a young man detained on a community mental ward, who is convinced he has been targeted for assassination. His only 'friend' is a toothless, psychotic heroin addict who wants the shirt off his back. Most of the staff couldn't care less. How would you survive your worst nightmare?

The Serotonin Grand Prix is a psychodrama that fuses elements of horror, black comedy and non-fiction in an uncompromising and gritty exploration of the paranoid mind.

You're stuck at the back of Life's starting grid; how badly do you want to win The Serotonin Grand Prix?

Review:

"A ram-raiding joyride of a read. Fasten your seatbelts; gritty, dynamic and relevant to these schizophrenic times!" --Dean Cavanagh, Screen Writer, Wedding Belles, Channel 4, UK.

"A thoroughly compelling, comically dark, dynamic and thought-provoking novella." --David Hayes, Leeds Student Newspaper, Arts review. May 2009.

"Alex Jenson is a brave writer. The subject of his novella, The Serotonin Grand Prix, is mental illness; a topic that some readers may shy away from. The book is thought-provoking, its volatile nature punctuated with moments of dark comedy." --Amy Smith, Forge Today Newspaper, Sheffield. Arts Magazine. February 2010.
