Having just survived his girlfriend’s suicide, a young painter leaves the provincial post-hippie world of Albuquerque for California Contemporary Arts in Valencia. Here he crosses paths with a fellow suicide survivor who is enrolled in the film program. Her Nico-esque personae and his small town background make for an exceptionally dark and erotically invested romance that drains them both to the point of no return. Interspersed with their adventures and coupling is a strongly satirical vision of contemporary art and art schools. Known for its poetic presentation, this is a must read for any potential art student or person on the verge of entering an ill-advised sexual relationship.
