Dead Rock Stars (2020)
Guy Mankowski
"Powerfully voices the concerns of a generation...a book with tenderness and sensitivity. Mankowski has written from a female perspective in a way that is touching, heartfelt and convincing. He is a consistently thoughtful, readable and rewarding novelist. His prose moves seamlessly between pensive introspection and meticulous observation, lyricism and drama."
