Fiction. THE BUS is a novel in the tradition of Miller, Kerouac and Whitman, a personal history set in Los Angeles, a lyrical journey down Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevards as the narrator travels through as many worlds as streets, from Echo Park to the ocean, to pick up his car from the auto mechanic.

"Abee is the love-powered bullhorn blasting down from the altitudes" - Beck

"A literary seer who speaks the language of billboards and boulevards, Steve Abee elevates the experience of our neighborhoods to soliloquies laced with the celebratory bitter tongue of city life. On our streets we hear the sound of words dying, but in the house of Abee they land in a heart rich with the blood of langauge." - Luis Alfaro

"Steve Abee is the Walt Whitman of up-from-the-gutter contempo poetry, the Kerouac of every corner you've ever slimed by without listening to the music of word-drunk skeeks and beautiful mutants with matted hair. THE BUS is a naked celebration of love for the damaged, and damaged love - the gritty yin and savage yang of the real Los Angeles." - Jerry Stahl

"Relentless prose that demands the reader to devour passage after passage, only to be left soul seared and simultaneously re-invigorated." - Lydia Lunch

"In pursuit of prophetic agency, Steve Abee grabs at each thought as it is presented to him, and squeezes it until it glows like a cultured pearl." - Lewis MacAdams

"Abee brings light to the unlit donut stores of consciousness. His complex imagery conveys the many windows of the everyday." - Danny Weizmann
