    Ebook by Sean Urquhart

    Lust & Longing in New York is a Gonzo-style journey into theconcrete heart of America. A next-gen incarnation of Hunter S. Thompson,Scottish poet and writer Sean Urquhart exposes his mind, body, and soulto NYC, and the city’s darkest vestiges seep out from beneath theirmodern-day sheen to greet him. With a head full of madness and drugs,Urquhart traverses Manhattan’s maze of streets, bars, hotels, subways,and subversive characters, offering unfiltered descriptions of hissights, sounds, and experiences. In a stream-of-consciousness (and oftenunconscious) style, Urquhart deals with his own internal despair aswell as a motley crew of misguided fellow Scots, drunken sympathizers,drug dealers (and sharers), mysterious women, and run-of-the-millAmerican drones. His gripping prose monologue is offset with inspired,one-of-a-kind poetry that brings his alcohol-addled vision of The BigApple to unsettling life. You’ll alternately pity and pull for Urquhartas he grapples with substance abuse, shady characters, and internalconflict, all the while unwilling or unable to escape the fate he’sarranged for himself. Lust & Longing in New York is a reckless, riveting experience that is as unforgettable as the great city itself.
