Stoned (Mudfish fiction series#1)
Stoned is about Maud Diamond, a 40-year-old woman with two children who is getting a divorce. She has had a colossal disappointment (having been jilted by a famous artist) and falling in love with a poor unknown artist (Kazimir Noble) assuages the disappointment but leads to other ills. The small son leaves home to live with his father; the daughter does phone sex from their new home. “I’m the only one in this house earning any money,” she shouts. It is about starting a literary journal called Wild Leek with the new boyfriend and moving downtown, while their relationship spirals downward from her pot-smoking and his alcoholism. It is for anyone who has been in love or lost love, been married, divorced, or lonely. It is about the satisfaction and deprivations of sex and drugs.
