Bunkie Spills

Bunkie Spills Bradley K. RosenABOUT THE BOOK

Bunkie Spills is a novel about two momentous days in the life of a tribe of suburban L.A. teenagers set in 1976. Bunkie, whose view of the world is as charming and skewed as the malapropisms that come out of his seventeen-year-old mouth, begins the tale with a girl and a rock concert.

Things start to fall apart for him and his high school sweetheart, Evelyn, when Bunkie realizes there’s something more than friendship going on between her and Big Pete, the oldest member of their tribe. Then the entire tribe does heroin for the first time, thus beginning Bunkie’s quest to listen to his broken heart over the long night that unfolds.

Bunkie maintains his essential honesty and innocence through two days filled with illicit drugs, sex and violence, and celebrates his dawning understanding of the failings of youth, the fight of good over evil, peace on earth, and the clashes that exist between humans and nature.

PRAISE FOR BUNKIE SPILLS

Bunkie Spills gives us some of the freshest, most-frenetic, kinetic, prophetic, dynamic, slam-bam, cut-loose writing in years. Brad’s voice, his voice is Salinger-only-better, a young Barry Hannah, a slacker Fitzgerald. Here is someone new worth reading.” – Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club and Choke

“You’ll never see so many people fit into a Volkswagen van as in Bunkie Spills. Bradley K. Rosen’s writing is a blast of voice, hilarious as the Keystone Cops but with a darkness. This amazing first novel is a surprising celebration of the inarticulate speech of the heart – that, and Brad’s deep sense of humanity is sure to make you weep.” – Tom Spanbauer, author of In the City of Shy Hunters and The Man Who Fell in Love With the Moon

“Having grown up in Southern California myself, I found Bunkie Spills to be a visceral and emotional kick in the nuts. I know these words, I hear them, I smell them, I taste them. A perfect capture of sublime loss and joy. The feeling when sad stories make you proud.” – Jerry Joseph, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and international touring artist
