The 909by Jim Stewart
THE 909 A group of young Americans are living in California's Inland Empire in the years after the dot-com crash of 2000. Before the crash, they might have become investment bankers or lawyers, but the experience of so much loss and economic hardship has undermined their belief in traditional American values, and sent them off to "The 909" in search of new experiences. Now they're living as artists and writers, going from bar to bar, drinking too much, gossiping more than working, and exploring a new sexual freedom. Nothing, we learn, will improve for these people. If they're lost, they won't be found; if they're forsaken, they won't be redeemed.

The stories were so gripping, that I felt like I was there to experience most of them, hmmm. Where did this author get his inspiration from anyway? It is amazing! Would I recommend this book to others? .....'sure.'
Reminds me alot of Ernest Hemingway's Sun Also Rises. Good book.
I read this book in a few days. It held my interest and really captured the spirt of the 909. The 'OC' look out -- we have a new OC (the inland empire) and a new great author.
