Stay God, Sweet Angel

Stay God, Sweet Angel

Damon, an aimless twenty-something drug dealer with a secret past, searches for his missing girlfriend after betraying their supplier.


CATEGORIZED IN

Damon lives a content life, playing video games and dealing drugs from his second-hand store while his girlfriend, Mary, drops constant hints about marriage. If only he could tell her his name isn't really Damon. If only he could tell her who he really is. But after he witnesses a friend's murder, a scarlet woman glides into his life, offering the solution to all of his problems. His carefully constructed existence soon shatters like crystal teardrops and he must determine which ghosts won't stay buried - and which ones are trying to kill him - if he wants to learn why Mary has disappeared.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Stay God, Nik Korpon's dark and edgy novel about an ambitious drug dealer in Baltimore, reads like the bastard child of Hubert Selby and Raymond Chandler. In beautifully rendered prose, Korpon delivers an intense story of love and treachery on mean and merciless streets. ~ Donald Ray Pollock, author

The pop-culture apocalypse is now, and Nik Korpon is one of its darkest new voices. Stay God mashes up the music, the movies, and the TV of our generation and pours it into a rusty martini shaker. It's a story about secrets, lies, love, and all of the stuff with which we fill our lives and time. Korpon, with his whiplash noir, is one to watch. ~ Anthony Neil Smith, author

Nik Korpon's Stay God is what happens when a story breaks loose from its moorings, burrows into the reader's psyche, and lives there, throbbing like the delirious ghost of William S. Burroughs. This book will stalk you. ~ Rayo Casablanca, author
