Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Richey Sauer is eighteen years old, beginning his first year at college to escape the dead end of middle-class, small-town life in Timaru, New Zealand. But in a landscape where redemption is a fiction and emotion is cliche, his intense internal world threatens to spill over. After an out-of-control dorm party Richey finds himself in front of a disciplinary committee on a sexual harassment charge for something he can't - or won't - remember. Dropping out of school before he's thrown out, he and his housemates Matt, Nick, and Ursula begin a freefall that forces Richey to face his most destructive desires." "Sex, violence, and drugs fuel the despair and alienation of teenagers too young to believe in boundaries of limits. Richey's actions may seem unforgivable, but the unformed and distorted world he reflects is immediate and recognizable to a generation brought up in a society indifferent to its own nihilism."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
