Katherine Dunn recommends
"Brutal and passionate. ...Stainless is the ultimate late night in L.A."
The Convalescent (2009)
"The Convalescent is a fleshy fable spinning in and out of its own enormous, fabulous history. It is lush, cranky, and powered by dark, sweet humor. Mesmerizing. And a lot of fun. I enjoyed it completely."
The Astounding, the Amazing, and the Unknown (2011)
"Affectionate and entertaining...An adventure that swoops from romp to chills, from humor to dread. Malmont's big, lush novel is sly and charming, nostalgic and intiguing fun."
Available Dark (2012)
(Cass Neary, book 2)
"Photographer and aging NYC punk rocker, Cass Neary is one of literature's great noir anti-heroes. Ferocious, aching with compassion and cruelly brilliant, Available Dark is a sinful pleasure."
"A searing, ballistic plunge into the mysteries of identity and mortality."
