9780062354990: Narcisa: Our Lady of Ashes

The first trade edition of the cult classic from the artist/author hailed by Iggy Pop as "the great nightmare anti-hero of the new age," legendary tattoo artist Jonathan Shaw, that chronicles a scandalous, degenerative addiction between two people--a wild, brutal, passionate, and unstoppable ride into depravity and darkness through the back alleys of Rio De Janeiro and New York City.

A legendary tattoo master and notorious creator of trendsetting underground art, Jonathan Shaw has created a masterpiece with this powerful story that captures the destructive addiction of love, sex and drugs, embodied in two people whose irresistible passions threaten to destroy them.

In the wild backwaters of Rio de Janeiro and New York, motorcycle-riding, nomadic outlaw poet Ignacio Valencia Lobos--known as Cigano--attempts in vain to curb the unhinged habits of his lover Narcisa, a crack-smoking philosopher prostitute. Though he knows they will destroy each other, Narcisa is an exquisite poison he cannot resist. As they navigate the chaos of her downward spiral--dragged deeper by the gravity of drugs, burglaries and violence, Cigano recounts a love affair doomed by insanity, dysfunction, and vice.

A magnificent epic of literary genius, Narcisa belongs among the works of such greats as Charles Bukowski, Henry Miller, William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, Irvine Welsh, and Hunter S. Thompson.

Review:

"Fearless storytelling."--Marilyn Manson

"Shaw's writing is one hell of a wild ride through the bizarre netherworld of his own damaged consciousness. His experiences are real and his language and insights kinetic and brutal... Shaw's writing certifies him as a subversive and criminal inhabitant of the world of human expression."--Jim Jarmusch

"A darkly hilarious litany of doomed love, drug addiction, compulsive sex and mutual enslavement..."--Vice

"Jonathan Shaw is the great nightmare anti-hero of the new age."--Iggy Pop
