Giveaway: Spoonful by Chris Mendius
Congratulations to: Natalie K. and Jean B.
In celebration of Spoonful by Chris Mendius (now available to buy), Book Equals was provided with two copies to give away to two lucky winners.
Told with a fresh voice, lots of dark pulp fiction humor, and vivid detail, SPOONFUL follows a group of young drug dealers, semi crooks, and wanna-be artists, struggling to make ends meet in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood of the late nineties. The place has become overrun with hipsters and yuppies moving in and taking over. Main character Michael Lira, a good guy with a wicked heroin habit, supports his lifestyle through petty crime and the occasional drug deal, and feeds his spirit by slipping away for trysts with Lila, a free-spirited painter who strips to pay the rent.
As everyone around him seems to be making it big in the Clinton era dot-com boom, Michael sees his chance for a way out of his life and the hope for a different future. With the help of his friend Sal, Michael pulls together a bundle of money and rolls the dice in the stock market. When his well-intentioned plan fails, his life spins out of his control as he struggles against the ever-present downward spiral of his addiction.
