Kamikaze Lust by Lauren Sander is her debut contemporary literary fiction novel, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Akashic Books.
This was the winner of the 2000 Lambda Literary Award in the Small Press category. The story takes the obligatory journey of self-discovery and gives it a humorously satirical edge, as a young woman goes on a zany and sometimes raunchy road trip through various places which touch her life.
Offered DRM-free through midnight December 14th, available worldwide directly from the publisher as part of their holiday advent calendar promotion.
Free for a limited time until around midnight EST December 14th (I think the download stays up several hours longer, but the offer officially expires then) @ the the publisher’s blog (DRM-free ePub & Mobi available worldwide), and you can read more about the book and its author over at the regular catalogue page
Kamikaze Lust takes the reader on an electrifying ride through the spectacle of life and death in millennial America. Smart, hardboiled, and humorous, the novel taps our current obsession with sex and death, sex and popular culture, sex and the written word, sex and pornography, sex and green M&Ms, and, of course, the perennial sex and love.
