Day Of The Locust: Californian Apocalypse Edition

This particular edition of the novel would emphasise latent postmodern / Lacanian symbolism of the image of the painter and his lonely, psychotic art quest – featuring the following:

  • 30s style Californian Noir (fishooks welded to bumpers)
  • Vaccuous, Less-Then-Zero style relationships (Ellis)
  • Strange Ballardian spaces
  • Delilloesque Amerikana
  • Grotesque Paintings
