Party Monster Summary

Party Monster by James St. James

The macabre of AMERICAN PSYCHO meets the glamour of Warhol's DIARIES.

Set in post Warhol '80s New York, PARTY MONSTER opens its doors to a kitsch-carnival existence where people are stars for no reason in their own cartoon world of crazed hedonism, decadent drug taking, glittering parties and unimaginable debauchery.

Flirting with fetishism and androgyny, theirs is a reality where the beautiful, bizarre, sequinned and freakish revel with tea, scones and heroin.

But the charm of their magical kingdom soon spiralled into something more sinister. In their 'surreality', a world without rules, would getting away with murder prove to be the ultimate thrill?

Party Monster Reviews

The book's high camp style, like the world it evokes, is riveting - Scotland on Sunday

A truly chilling book - Guardian

Hilariously good fun - Time Out

Lurid and fascinating - New Statesman

Hysterically camp... this book is not for the faint-hearted - Sunday Times

Somewhere between JG Ballard and a more sensitive approach, PARTY MONSTER is a cautionary yet disturbingly entertaining read - Jockey Slut
