Dream Junkies

Alexandra Ares. CreateSpace, $13.95 paper (348p) ISBN 978-1-4609-9499-3
In this entertaining novel, Ares (My Life on Craigslist) sends New Yorkers Kitty Roman and Desert Rose on a whirlwind trip to Los Angeles in search of fun and fortune. While Desert Rose's pursuit of uncommitted boyfriend Charlie becomes increasingly frantic, Kitty finds her own wish for nonattachment conflicting with her desire to live life passionately. Amid the book's humorous side glances at pompous New York types and commercialism running rampant in the Los Angeles art world, Kitty's belief in fateful encounters pits her heart against what she terms the good-enough sense of commitment. Despite its modest philosophical trappings, this is an enjoyable read that offers a pleasingly light take on the old refrains of friendship, career paths, and romantic entanglements.
