A sweeping multigenerational story set against the backdrop of the raw, roaring New York City of the late 1980s; Adoption, teen pregnancy, drugs, hardcore punk rock, the unbridled optimism and reckless stupidity of the young—and old—are all major elements in this heart-aching tale of the son of diehard hippies and his strange odyssey through the extremes of late 20th century youth culture.
"Ten Thousand Saints" is based on the novel of the same name by Eleanor Henderson and was published in 2011 by HarperCollins/Ecco. It was named one of the Top 10 Books of 2011 by The New York Times and a Year’s Reading Selection by The New Yorker and was a finalist for the Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction from The Los Angeles Times.
