In Rachel Resnick's first novel, "Go West Young F*cked-Up Chick," twenty-something Rebecca Roth goes West to flee the specter of her dead mother and to make it in the film business. In L.A., she encounters a dizzying cast of characters while she pursues her revenge-driven dream of stardom. This wonderfully strange and splintered narrative has been compared to Nathanial West's Day of the Locust for it's nightmarish truths and mosaic-like fragments.

"F*cking amazing! Imagine Irvine Welsh with a sex change and air-dropped onto Hollywood. Go West... is more than a great book, it's a phenomenon. A flat-out hysterical, heart-for-days guide through end-of-the-line Los Angeles. Rachel Resnick can write the ass off any man alive." --Jerry Stahl, author of "Permanent Midnight"
