Victoria, BC (PRWEB) September 21, 2012
Mix the anarchic spirit of Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club with the tough as nails lifestyles showcased in Hunter S. Thompson’s Hell’s Angels and the resulting concoction is “Moon Tanning”. This new novel about three mechanic friends with a knack for motorcycles and mayhem marks Gwynn Davies’s debut into the literary scene.
The story is set during a time absent of war and environmental hullaballoo— a time when anyone could go full throttle on a motorcycle. At the center of it all are three mismatched mechanics: the old, wise and grizzled Albert, 30-year old Harry from the other side of Canada and the gritty, 20-something narrator. The three share a deep kinship with each other and an obsession with motorcycles— a precarious mix that would propel them and readers on innumerable adventures on and off the road and along the fringes of society and order.
Told in swift and exhilarating prose, “Moon Tanning” engrosses with the shining details of the lifestyles, obsessions, personalities and friendships that come alive on every page.
