Kirkus Reviews Recommends THE SUMMER OF CRUD

Kirkus Reviews, one of the world’s most respected book review journals, recommended Jonathan LaPoma’s dark and disturbing coming-of-age novel, THE SUMMER OF CRUD, calling it, “A rollicking, entertaining adventure on the open road starring two ferocious youths fueled by booze, pot, and canned spaghetti . . . A slender, fast-paced, fever-dreamed excursion . . . undeniably addictive.”

THE SUMMER OF CRUD will be published by Almendro Arts in February 2018.
