Rock Gods & Messy Monsters is one woman’s search for self among the blood-soaked walls, dangling body parts, and alien-hatched explosions inside Acht Records.
Hailed by Kirkus Reviews as a “fast-paced, entertaining comic treat” and “the best kind of absurdism” from the Independent Book Review, the book is a humorous, fictional satire about discovering self-love.
It’s the 1990s. Alex arrives to work at Acht, her improbable blonde hair streaked stress magenta and anger black. Her first duty is to wipe blood off her boss’s walls. It goes downhill from there.
On the surface, Rock Gods & Messy Monsters is a hilarious story about life inside an entertainment company. A cast of comedic characters exemplifies the inner workings of Acht, where power and greed mask incompetence.
Underneath and between the lines of exploding body parts and brain extractions, Rock Gods & Messy Monsters is a cautionary tale. The story weaves through themes such as the Great Resignation, Quiet Quitting, and MeToo before they were movements. And it reminds us that our dreams can be illusions.
Learning who we really are takes courage and a commitment to self-love.Meet the Author
