AN AMATEUR PORN STAR, A ROBOT & A FRIEND NAMED SKID ROE
book launch for A Free Man > MAY 7
ABOUT A FREE MAN
Presented as a booze-and-pot-fuelled conversation between two old friends catching up after a long separation. This dreamlike story includes an amateur porn star, a robot, and footnotes written by the narrator’s delusional self-absorbed friend, Skid Roe. An unsual and remarkable dystopian novel, A Free Man is even more inventive and darkly funny than Black Bird, Basilères’ award-winning debut.
