White Mexicans is the third literary release from Belfast author, David Louden. His now well-rounded, earthy writing style has drawn comparisons to legendary American author Charles Bukowski from fellow authors, publications and audiences alike. From Friday 17th - Sunday 19th July White Mexicans is FREE on Amazon Kindle.
Too poor to escape Los Angeles, too weak to survive in it; Doug Morgan takes a job writing an Exploitation movie to pay the bills. Struggling with the pay-off between art and commerce he finds himself on the path to redemption, if he can scrape himself off rock bottom.
Half novella, half short story compilation, White Mexicans is an American tale told in the Irish yarn tradition. Populated with Louden’s usual spit and spite dialogue, off-colour humour and poetic lamentation of a world gone wrong; his third outing is a mix of fable and low-life fiction.
“Really funny.” -Nik Everleigh
“Powerful and thought provoking.” -Hugh Cron
“Bukowski’s style and to the point attitude.” -Adam West
“A witty, self-deprecating humour […] the final sentence did make me grin and wince at the same time.” -Diane Dickson
“A rare voice.” -Anthony Wobbe
“A lot of style to it and dark humour in abundance […] tackles every story subject with ferocity and without fear.” -Nik Everleigh
Lost Angeles | Bone Idol [bohn ahyd-l]
