-- San Francisco, December 11, 2006 "Wanderlost, The Curse of the Non-Generation"
is a fast journey across America on the rails. Intelligent, blunt, journalistic-
type fiction which records what happens beneath the cracks. . . . “It was winter and I was sliding down, down into the decline of my middle twenties – lost in an endless cycle of high and wild nights, jaded dreams and terrible booze shits in between. The nights filled with faux hipsters screaming poetry in piano bars, jocks, thugs and meatheads on the prowl for cheap sex . . . Like unwilling cogs in the vast machine, we chased the end of the night like we chased our own immortality”
Ben Olson says it is a backlash to this dumb culture taken over by a crassness of people who are all passionately apathetic. Ben is only 25 years old and has already had a couple dozen articles published in weekly newspapers and some literary journals. Ben is a prophet howling at the American landscape. In the same vein as Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson, here is a voice destined for significance in American literature.
