This is the imaginary soundtrack to a wacky book that a fascinating fellow rambled about between bong hits on a sofa at some party numerous years ago. He stated that it was an atrociously crafted tale, but with genius descriptions of soul, funk & latin music in the late 1970s. I failed to take down the name of this literary anomaly and have had no success using the internet to procure a title or author. All I know about the guy on the sofa was that his name was Jerry and maybe he's in Japan.
He said it was basically about a young, white, well-sculpted female who flees from home after her folks catch her with some reefer. She ends up in a vividly erotic love triangle with a brotha and a Puerto Rican trumpet player in NYC that results in some kind of parking lot murder. The girl and surviving guy then hop in a car with a billion cassettes and drive across the country to escape police. Crazy shit happens and they end up driving off a bridge in New Mexico.
Anyone know it?
