Overview

Sick City: A Novel by Tony O'Neill

Sick City is fun, twisted and brutal….O’Neill could be our generation’s Jim Thompson.”
— James Frey, author of Bright Shiny Morning

 

“Tony O’Neill works his L.A. people the way Dutch Leonard had his hand down the pants of every degenerate in his great Detroit novels.”
— Barry Gifford, author of Wild at Heart

 

From Tony O’Neill, the author of Down and Out on Murder Mile and coauthor of the Neon Angel and the New York Times bestselling Hero of the Underground, comes Sick City—a wild adventure of two junkies, Hollywood, and the Sharon Tate sex tape. Readers of Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty) and Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) will take great delight in Sick City, “a disturbingly twisted ride through Hollywood’s underbelly with a degenerate cast of colorfully interwoven characters” (Slash).

What People are Saying About This

Barry Gifford

“Tony O’Neill works his L.A. people the way Dutch Leonard had his hand down the pants of every degenerate in his great Detroit novels. Cover your ears, ladies; thanks to O’Neill, the cries of pain can be heard from one sick city to another. Just use your eyes.”

James Frey

Sick City is fun, twisted and brutal. One of the best books written about LA in a long time. O’Neill could be our generation’s Jim Thompson.”

Sebastian Horsley

“Reading Tony O’Neill is like traveling downhill in a car with no lights at terrific speed and driven by a four-year-old child on meth. The signposts along the way are all marked ‘Nowhere.’”

Dan Fante

“Tony O’Neill writes about the Hollywood I know as well as any writer alive. His characters are a punch in the face, scorchingly real. His dialogue is note-perfect.”

Tom McCarthy

“I f**king loved it — the piss-soaked floors, the vomit-impastoed car interiors, the groans and grunts from every room. It’s like some weirdly loveable purgatory.”

Slash

Sick City is a disturbingly twisted ride through Hollywood’s underbelly with a degenerate cast of colorfully interwoven characters. I loved the whole f**ked up journey.”

Could not put it down. If like Bukowski, Irine Welsh or Dan Fante. You'll love this book and Tony O'niell.

Okay, Sick City is sick; in a good way. Trying to watch as these two junkies Jeffrey and Randal try and survive in Hollywood is an amusement ride all onto itself. I enjoyed reading this book and seeing a world that I couldn't even imagine. Kudos to author Tony O'Neill for giving an extreme insight to the world of the wild and underbelly of the Hollywood drug scene.
