420 Characters

by Lou Beach
169 pages


Within this collection of miniature stories, entire worlds take shape—some like our own, some hallucinatory fairylands--populated by heartsick cowboys, random criminals, lovers and drifters. In a dazzling narrative constellation, Beach’s characters contend with the strange and terrible and beautiful in life, and no outcome is certain. Begun as a series of Facebook status updates, 420 Characters marks a new turn in an acclaimed artist and illustrator’s career, and features original collages by the author.

Jonathan Lethem wrote this review (featured on the cover), “Holy sh*t! These are great!”  Mr. Lethem I totally agree.

  1. This cruiser is what happens when you mix a classical-styled bicycle with a vibrant color pallet Hermosa Beach.
