Black Neon

Lupita and Genesis have just wasted a drug dealer, ripped-off his stash, then hit the open road with a suitcase full of dirty money. Little do they know that their road trip will set them on a collision course with a side of America darker and weirder than either of them could have ever imagined.

“A pitch black classic slice of neo-noir, where black magic, art house cinema, drug-fueled madness and apocalyptic violence collide with dizzying effect. I fell in love with every page of Black Neon.”

-Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting, Skagboys, and Filth

“In much the same way that Hubert Selby Jr gave his fans whiplash after careening from the scuzzy-yet-commercial Last Exit To Brooklyn to bleak, avant-garde depths of The Room…  less adventurous fans of O’Neill’s previous novels might find themselves a little disorientated when first confronted by Black Neon.   Make no mistake, this is a major work from one of today’s best English-language writers – it’s complex, dark, and deeply personal – but it is also off-putting: a primal scream, a terrifying act of catharsis cunningly disguised as a noir-novel […] recommended for literary junkies who don’t mind taking a walk on the wild side.

– Le Mond

“O’Neill is an author with a talent for describing life’s darkest moments and the beauty that can come out of them.”

– The Financial Times

“The novels consistent tone of urgency and desperation creates a gritty world of its own that compels.”

– Publishers Weekly
