Though band narratives generally follow a simple formula (e.g. unbridled sex, excessive drugs, trace elements of plot, etc.) this book is different.

by Giovanni ZunigaOn its surface, A Lust For Love is a self-inflicted, crude and cruel journey through cocktail bars, strip clubs, girls’ bedrooms, red-lit rooms, tearful breakups, porn collections, and melancholy memories.
