Set in the gritty world of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District, Suicide Blonde follows 29-year-old Jesse as she struggles to connect with Bell, her troubled boyfriend. But Bell yearns for another love–a man named Kevin–and he mysteriously disappears into the bizarre netherworld of the city’s seedy gay bars. A sensational novel published in nine languages, Suicide Blonde is a startling, knowing expurgation of identity and time, as well as the common, and now tainted, language of sexuality.
