Product description

Product Description

In this blackly comic political thriller, double-amputee Vietnam veteran Max--called "One of the most psychologically and emotionally damaged heroes in modern fiction"--and his Vietnamese war-widow girlfriend Mai travel through the dark belly of mid-1980s America, seeking justice and personal redemption against abusers of every stripe. They are hotly pursued by enemies both physical and psychological. Along the way, Max and Mai are forced to summon unbelievable courage--exhibiting levels of love and resourcefulness and commitment previously unfathomable--as they fight not just for their own lives, but for the lives of countless others.

From the illicit pharmaceutical underworld of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District to a nightmarishly bizarre movie set in booming Las Vegas, from the urban-industrial hideout of militant black revolutionaries to a botched backyard lynching by Texas frat boys, Orange Rain hurtles from one stunning scene to the next. It sways between the hilarious and the hideous, exploring myriad dark places in America where the two intersect. It is an ode to humans' ability to endure in the face of horrific suffering. A celebration of feminine strength and spirit.

Orange Rain is rife with humor darker than the Marlboro Man’s coffee (and his lung cancer). It is quite unlike any other book you've read.
