No past. No future. Only now.
Originally a self-publishing success launched on N. Frank Daniels's MySpace page, the novel Futureproof tells the story of Luke and his friends as they navigate Atlantas subculture of delinquents. In short order, the seemingly harmless high from his first cigarette sends Luke on a downward spiral that ends only after years of self-abuse. It is an extreme cautionary tale told with sensitivity, ferocity, and grit.
N. Frank Daniels was born in Philadelphia, raised in Atlanta, and educated in Kentucky. He recently coedited the anthology Santi: Lives of Modern Saints. He lives in Nashville.
“Harrowing, gripping, starkly original.”
-New York Press
“Be the first on your block to glimpse the future of American fiction - if not the future of America. Lock the doors, load your guns, and let N. Frank Daniels take you straight to a hell you can believe in.”
-Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight
“He seems to share punkish DNA with the likes of Irvine Welsh, Paul Westerberg and Bret Easton Ellis”
