reading & booksigning

books In Rachel Resnick's debut novel, Go West Young F*cked-Up Chick (paperback, $12.95), twenty-something Rebecca Roth goes West to flee the specter of her dead mother and make it in the movies. In L.A., she encounters a dizzying cast of characters while pursuing her revenge-driven dream of stardom. "Bravely bizarre and splintered as a mosaic, like pieces of Bruce Wagner and Nathaniel West glued into a window sunlit with despair," Kirkus Reviews.
