Vagablonde is a darkly humorous, rollercoaster ride through the Los Angeles music scene about a woman who wants two things, the first is to live without psychotropic medication, and the second is to experience success as an artist.
...[a] fresh, startling debut ... It comes as no surprise that as success looms, things veer out of control, but Dorn is most successful when she charts Prue’s interior life, which knows there’s more to life than likes. Dorn’s voice slices like a serrated knife through a wacked-out world of contemporary music culture, where glittery dreams go viral and die.
...[a] pulse quickening debut ... A tumultuous ride of emotional highs and lows (do yourself a favor and don’t read this in one sitting), Dorn’s narrative is intoxicating, particularly in its depiction of the existential ennui that’s stemmed from our insatiable consumer culture ... Dorn may have written the horror novel we deserve
