New York (PRWEB) April 14, 2014
In “Stoned: Set Me Free” (published by Lulu), author Doug Christiania takes inspiration from Jack Kerouac’s generation-defining masterwork, “On the Road,” to pen this bacchanalian adventure set in the streets and café’s of Amsterdam.
Christiania brings his theme of freedom to life in this blistering invasion into the soul of Amsterdam. Readers follow Doug, the protagonist, as he and his sidekick, Cocaine Jones, tour the beauty and depravity that is the enigmatic capital of dissipation.
“On the surface,” writes Christiania, “the book is about the restrictions and expectations that society places on us. If you dig a little deeper, it’s about the restrictions and expectations we place on ourselves.”
Christiania hopes his book will give readers, “pleasure, laughter and a moment of appreciation for the instant we are alive.”
An excerpt from “Stoned”:
“We were lost in the throes of ebullient, intoxicated conversation when the bar began to rock with a rising tide of muted explosions permeating the helpless walls, windows, and doors. The ﬁnal minute of the year had arrived and our unrelenting foe marched on, undeterred by any forces of man or nature.”
