The Neon Lights Are Veins

The Neon Lights Are Veins - Nolan Knight

The Neon Lights Are Veins


The underbelly of Los Angeles, 2008; a place where hometown hard-lucks and wayward hustlers scrounge for hope in gutters. Top of the heap: Alvi Drake, an aged pro skateboarder whose lone thrill is a pill-fueled escape from the terror of past ghosts. Once news hits of the disappearance of an old flame, Alvi's plummet smashes through rock bottom, sending him on a quest to find her.

With help from his fellow damned (Mongo, Chester and Faye), he spirals through neon wilderness, stumbling upon an underground of sex and drug trafficking, the depths of which street life has yet to take him.

Blinded by love and dismissing the reality of his actions, this hunt for another lost angel could be the biggest mistake in his track ridden life.

Praise for The Neon Lights are Veins

"Knight's slangy prose is a perfect fit for characters whose dreams die slowly or explosively." -Publishers Weekly

"The Neon Lights Are Veins is a dope-fueled gutter-punk odyssey through a gaudy nightmare version of Los Angeles. With echoes of James Ellroy and Nathanael West, Knight carves out his own bit of L.A. crime-writing turf in this impressive debut." -Richard Lange, author of Dead Boys, This Wicked World, Angel Baby, Sweet Nothing and The Smack

"Nolan Knight has written a dark, dirty and entertaining sewer ride through the neon-lit streets of Los Angeles. Imagine Nathanael West and Darby Crash writing a 21st century noir and you've got The Neon Lights Are Veins. Highly recommended." -Jim Ruland, author of Forest of Fortune, My Damage: The Story of a Punk Rock Survivor and Do What You Want: The Story of Bad Religion

"Nolan Knight is at the forefront of Hard-Ass-Noir. He's the mad hatter of words and dark moody storytelling. He's a creative crime-pugilist!" -Frank Bill, author of Crimes in Southern Indiana, Donnybrook and The Savage

"Nolan Knight's The Neon Lights Are Veins is unlike anything I've read before (and that's saying something!). The novel's story is a fast-paced mystery and caper, dragging the reader through the underbelly of the Los Angeles night, but most impressive is Knight's style: in your face and no-holds-barred." -Steph Post, author of Lightwood and Miraculum

"High action. Very fast paced. A great read. Highly Recommended." -S.W. Lauden, author of Bad Citizen Corporation and Grizzly Season
