COLLAGE COVER #2

Another Chinese Gucci Collage From Start To Finish…

Here’s another time-lapsed look at a Chinese Gucci collage as it was made. The pre-sale of the special editions goes wide on 30 September 2018, just a week or so away.

Here’s a couple of scorching-hot new blurbs:

Somewhere between a Harmony Korine film and a Tao Lin novel, Chinese Gucci is a book about desire and greed and being too spoiled to figure out your dreams. It’s a book about being alive in the 21st century and maybe what all our futures will look like—buying and selling and gaming and drinking and drugging. Nights in Mexico. Days on the computer. Forgetting the difference between what’s real and fake. The edges on this novel are sharp enough to cut the reader’s throat. Filled with text messages and prose as clean as the best dirty realists, Chinese Gucci is a novel filled with characters no one wants, characters who do despicable things, characters who most of us are, and we all need to read it.
— Dave Newman, author of The Poem Factory and Two Small Birds
Chinese Gucci, in the embodiment of Akira Nakimura, is a fantastically written desolate portrait of today’s rootless youth navigating this inverted totalitarian, tech-junkied, consumerist piece of steaming shit called America that has smugly sat its fat, racist, rotting lilly white ass on stolen land for over two hundred and forty years.
— John Grochalski, author of The Librarian and Wine Clerk

Chinese Gucci’s main character, Akira, is maddening, endearing, troublesome, wounded, lonely, lazy, and a tremendously enthralling ne’er-do-well. A modern Ignatius J. Reilly selling knock-off Chinese Gucci on eBay. You’ll love him and hate him, you’ll want to save him and throw him off a building. Hosho McCreesh is a serious talent and Chinese Gucci is a tremendous debut.
— Willy Vlautin, author of Don’t Skip Out on Me
I’m not sure how much a blurb from an obscure writer will help, I’m shit at blurbs. Chinese Gucci is uniquely American and reads very clean and lucid, a vivid representation of real American lives, as opposed to all that Hollywood crap. It’s a great novel, amigos.
— Joseph Ridgwell, author of Burrito Deluxe
