[Fiction - Literature - Rock]
Legendary writer, artist and punk rock innovator Richard Hell's second novel is a stunning achievement, and possibly his most important work in any medium to date. Combining the grit, wit, and invention of Go Now with the charged lyricism and emotional implosiveness of his groundbreaking music, Godlike is a dazzling, heartwrenching tale of one whose values in life are the values of poetry. Set largely in the early '70s, but structured as a middle-aged poet's 1997 notebooks and drafts for a memoir-novel, the book recounts the story of a young man's affair with a remarkable teenage poet. A novel of compelling originality and beauty.
