I spoke with the wildly talented Jon Lindsey about his brilliant and beloved debut novel, Body High, set to drop on May 1st through House of Vlad press. In the words of a very wise man: “This book is dosed. Lick the toad.” Buy your copy ASAP to see what the wise man's on about.
In this episode, Jon and I talk Body High, how to write exciting sentences, grief, Faulkner, writing as catharsis, Giancarlo DiTrapano, the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs, and a bunch of other stuff. We also drank delicious champagne, courtesy of Jon.
About Body High, Bud Smith says, "Jon Lindsey is a wild man. Body High is the best novel about Los Angeles I've ever read." And Garielle Lutz writes, "Jon Lindsey is the new gleefully heartbreaking voice of California's broken world. The darkening caper at the core of this novel of griefs and raucous self-discoveries unfolds in rioting prose that bursts into crazed poetry around every curve. Body High is the debut of a remarkably gifted writer."
