We’re delighted to publish D. Foy’s third novel Absolutely Golden on September 12, 2017. The novel is our second with Foy after last year’s critically acclaimed Patricide. The book is available from our online store, from Amazon.com or to order from your local bookseller.
“Absolutely Golden encapsulates everything that is sexy, irreverent, absurdist, and hilarious about America. It’s a mid-life check-in, a stripped examination of identity, a self- and social transformation. D. Foy is an American hero—or should I say, anti-hero—and this book is for all of us, all of you, even as it is wholly and singularly his own. It will slay you. There is no other like it.” —Sarah Gerard
“D. Foy has a profound understanding of both the human tragicomedy and the eternal tension between the yin and yang of carnal desire and the whip-cracking superego. His narrator Rachel, a 38-year-old schoolteacher and widow, is a funny, effortlessly likeable character who wants to believe in other people’s goodness but knows not to trust appearances, especially when stumbling through her stay at a nudist colony with a ne’er-do-well boyfriend and his stripper ‘cousin.’ Absolutely Golden is a wholly original novel full of extraordinary, richly-drawn characters who find themselves in—no surprise—supremely memorable situations.” —Christine Sneed
“Absolutely Golden absolutely captures the hairy salaciousness of the 1970s in a tight, beautifully-rendered little package. Gyrating seamlessly between the hilarious and profound, D. Foy’s prose never falters, and the Vaseline-smeared lens he directs onto the subculture of naturism at its peak is at once unsparing and wonderfully doting. I love this book.” —Augustus Rose
“Imagine that Virginia Woolf fell asleep reading A Midsummer Night’s Dream and called up a fizzy time and place that didn’t yet exist: 1970s California. In Absolutely Golden, D. Foy—on whose sentences we can stake our lives—has distilled pure, mind-blowing enchantment.” —Nelly Reifler
“Absolutely Golden is a luscious, chewy journey through the hopes and deceptions of 1970s alt-America. Its bawdy characters will enchant you; the vitality of D. Foy’s prose will make you weep. He is one of the most urgent and original fiction writers working today, and to read him is a reminder to keep dreaming out of bounds.” —Courtney Maum
