Lost Souls, the new short story collection from the author of short story collection Emotionless Souls and novel Corporate Porn, is now available.
“Grant writes like an artist paints. There is a lot left to interpretation. Is this book for everyone? No. It is for those who truly understand the artistic side to writing.” - Stephanie Rollins
A drug addict turning on his dealer. A mentor that believes teaching is sending his students on dangerous adventures. Retirement plans for the evil minded to find salvation. Misinterpreted comments in the work place lead to a building up in flames. A man named Charlie crashing at the hands of addiction.
A reality show director gone astray, psychotic taxi drivers, drugged out tourists in Amsterdam, rehab stints, and new pills to help you forget are the twenty-one stories of LOST SOULS sandwiched between a suicide letter and eulogy in this collection by David S. Grant (author of Corporate Porn, Bleach|Blackout, Emotionless Souls, and The Last Breakfast).
"Stuck somewhere between J.D. Salinger, Chuck Palahniuk and Bret Easton Ellis, author David S. Grant delves into the life of a modern misanthrope whose drug usage would make Hunter S. Thompson envious. Grant laid-back style makes the misadventures an easy pill to swallow......It’s dark, disturbing and usually uncomfortable. David S. Grant is an author to watch. He could easily become the next Chuck Palahniuk with his fragmented style and stream of consciousness writing."
-Stefan Halley, Pop Syndicate
"Pop culture references are peppered through the descriptions and add to the themes found in the story, for example, a girl who is extremely attractive loses a few points for owning a certain CD, Hah love it! These aren’t happy stories and there isn’t too much uplifting metaphor behind the story, but satisfying? Oh yes, that it was. This is a keeper and will find a nice home on my shelf between Brett Easton Ellis and Jay McInerney – I think it will find this a cozy spot." - Joanne, The Book Zombie
