"Bleach and its sequel Blackout are going on my favorite reads of the year. These aren’t happy stories and there isn’t too much uplifting metaphor behind the story, but satisfying? Oh yes, that it was. This is a keeper and will find a nice home on my shelf between Bret Easton Ellis and Jay McInerney—I think it will find this a cozy spot."
—Joanne, The Book Zombie (Bleach | Blackout)

“A highly entertaining guide that will bring back memories of long ago back in full force” —Café of Dreams (Rock Stars)

“I would recommend this book for the guy who has everything.”
—The Cajun Book Lady (Rock Stars)

“Moments of suspense mixed with off-the-wall humor make Hollywood Ending a smile-inducing, feel-good read that you simply can’t miss—and that makes David S. Grant an author to keep an eye on.”
—Margaret Marr, Nights and Weekends (Hollywood Ending)

“Grant’s novella The Last Breakfast is something very engaging and banks a lot on the power of dialogue.”
—Sri Lanka Sunday Observer (The Last Breakfast)

"Stuck somewhere between J.D. Salinger, Chuck Palahniuk and Bret Easton Ellis, author David S. Grant delves into the life of a modern misanthrope whose drug usage would make Hunter S. Thompson envious. Grant's laid-back style makes the misadventures of Jeremy and his drug addled buddies an easy pill to swallow. David S. Grant is an author to watch.”
—Stefan Halley, Pop Syndicate

“Grant writes like an artist paints. There is a lot left to interpretation. Is this book for everyone? No. It is for those who truly understand the artistic side to writing.”
—Stephanie Rollins (Emotionless Souls)

What would Stephen Tyler do?

Mickey, an ex-adult movie star turned supermodel, has to choose between two Johnsons—should he align himself with fashion icon Paul Johnson, the cigar smoking, micromanaging, chainsaw wielding megalomaniac, or Sandy Johnson, the flamboyant, murderous, vindictive narcissist? Which designer can propel Mickey to the top of Seventh Avenue? While trying to land his dream runway job, Mickey is thrown into the center of a scene where sex is often the motivation, the wine is served by year, and cocaine is back in full force.

A runway exhibition has been scheduled to determine who—Paul or Sandy—is truly the best Johnson. Mickey will be Paul’s top model, and Sandy has found a homeless person nicknamed Kung Fu Master to showcase his line.

In addition to getting his new line in place, Paul Johnson is also buying chain saws—the louder the better—to put the special in this special event. Did you know that you can’t be sentenced to prison if you are actively seeking help at a mental facility? Paul Johnson knows this.

Somewhere between the girls, counting Vicodin pills, and preparing for this runway extravaganza, Mickey develops a conscience. He believes (and his psychiatrist agrees) that he has the power to change what’s happening around him. Is there anything Mickey can do to derail the epic showdown between fashion's two most powerful Johnsons before anyone else ends up dead?

In a world where this year is the new last year and cocaine is the new cocaine, blood is the new red.
