It’s no secret that AFI / Blaqk Audio frontman Davey Havok has been broadening his horizons these days. Actor, clothing & vegan shoe designer, Broadway performer; now we must add author to the list. Havok has just released his first novel, entitled Pop Kids. In an unusual move, but appropriate given his experience, two trailers have also been released to promote the novel.
About the book:
Score Massi is about to turn 18 years old. A pop-culture obsessed, pseudo- vegetarian, atheist, pyromaniac, trapped within a rural northern Californian town, he longs for escape to a city life of fame and fortune. He knows that he deserves nothing less. But when the underground parties that Score hosts start to spiral out of control his fame comes early. As does his collapse.
Inspired by pop stars, fashion models, celebrities, Internet porn, social networking, reality TV, sex, drugs and vegan banana bread, the Pop Kids shine an arc light on modern nihilism.
Paperback copies of Pop Kids are available now where fine books are sold. The electronic version is now available online. A limited edition paperback is currently available through PopKids.com
