Description

In this crackling debut novel, Ashley Little follows in the footsteps of Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk to create a new anti-heroâ??one whose audacity is matched by his vulnerability

PRICK is narrated by twenty-one year old Anthony â??Antâ? Young: an artist, an asshole, an anti-hero. After fleeing a violent home life in Calgary, Ant moves to Victoria, BC, where he earns his tattooing apprenticeship under Hank the Tank, a founding member of the powerful Luciferâ??s Choice motorcycle gang. Under Hankâ??s guidance, Ant learns the craft and business of tattoo, but he is also exposed to a vicious and frightening criminal underworld. Written in intense, rapid-fire bursts, PRICK explores themes of addiction, desire, and remorse. As Antâ??s life spirals out of control, he struggles to hold on to the one thing he really cares about in this unforgettable, disturbing, and darkly funny tale.

Editorial Review

â??Fearless, the straight stuff! An arresting look at the world of tattoo; graphic as a freshly embroidered skull on virgin skin. Via the morally ambiguous point of view of an eager young apprentice, PRICK is an entrée to a world not often seen and even less understood. With wistful shades of Willie Vlautin and all the grit of Charles Bukowski, Ashley Little lushly demonstrates that hers is an important new voice in unflinchingly real storytelling.â?â??Dennis E. Bolen, author of Kaspoit!
