From Jim Marquez, the acclaimed author of such whiskey-fueled contemporary classics as "Beastly Bus Tales", "Watching the Skies & Other Beastly Tales," and Jim's... More > schizophrenic-murder-mystery "Pieces of L.A.", comes his long-awaited 15th self-published book "A Moveable Beast: Tales from L.A. & Beyond". As in Jim's previous titles the reader is assaulted with lurid and outlandish tales of sticky sex, cheap booze, cheaper dames, uncomfortable truths in race relations, violence, the homeless epidemic, bars, death, broken relationships, bad sex, no sex, and, in general, the corruption of the mind, body, and soul. Follow Jim across the rat infested, alcohol drenched, sad, pitiful, lost, and lonely streets of not only Jim's hometown of East Los Angeles and his adoptive backyards of Downtown LA and Koreatown, but, also Las Vegas, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Ireland, and South Korea. Devilishly written in Jim's infamous-no-holds-barred-over-the-top-foul-mouthed-and-train-wreck-first-person narrative.< Less

“Watching The Skies & Other Beastly Tales” is Jim Marquez’s 14th self-published book in 8 years! A departure of sorts for Jim as he leaves the grimy confines of Downtown Los... More > Angeles and takes us on a surreal journey across the alien landscape of a forbidden Nevada desert (through the eyes of a ‘young Jack Morales’), tumbles alongside the inebriated canals of Amsterdam, looks for love in all the wrong places in Scotland, and has to run for his life in London! This collection of ‘Beastly’ tales of life on the rocks then returns to the warped sensibility of L.A. for a wicked homage to Nathaniel West’s “Day of the Locust” (illustrated by artist Emmeric Konrad), and finally comes to a crushing halt in Jim’s hometown of East L.A. In between, for how could he resist (?), Jim examines the base nature of man back on the wee-hours-streets of a changed & vanishing Downtown arts scene: Booze. Sex. Racism. Violence. Madness. Family fun for all!< Less

“Beastly Bus Tales” is Jim Marquez’s 13th self-published book in 7 years! The premise to this one is simple: ‘Jack Morales’, our stumbling writer of extreme minor... More > celebrity from Jim’s novel “Pieces of L.A.”, has just one lousy wish: to get home after a raucous night of the white man’s whiskey. For this Jack takes the bus. And, there, kids, is the rub!For after the witching hour in the City of Angels many beasts go bump in the night, and we discover that Jack is not alone. Here then are Jack’s BEASTLY TALES; boots on the ground, pushing his way through the walls of madness and indignation, the wretched adrift, the drunken, the dealers, the addicts, the prostitutes, their pimps, the amateurs, the cops, the artists, the rats, (oh christ, the rats!), and the English teachers, molesters of the night all of them! Shameful, despicable gluttony; slithering its way into the second decade of the 21st century.< Less
