The death of his best friend from a drug overdose propels a teenage slacker son of ex-hippies into a whole new world, in Eleanor Henderson‘s debut novel.

It’s the late 1980s and Jude Keffy-Horn has been raised in Vermont, where he spents most of his time trying to find new ways to get high. But after his friend Teddy’s death, his mother sends him to Manhattan to live with his pot-dealing father. That’s where Jude stumbles upon the nascent “straight edge” movement which loves aggressive hardcore punk music, but has no use for sex, drugs, or meat.

Henderson calls hers a coming-of-age, and coming-to-terms, story. It’s titled “Ten Thousand Saints.”
