Ensconced in the black hole between childhood and adulthood, a glorious degenerate-grade freedom endures. A rebellion from respectability. An anathema to normalcy. It is the type of defiance that’s hopeful―hurt by the world but looking to reconcile it. Enter Gogo Germaine and her girl gang of delinquents. As manic teens in the ’90s punk scene, they engage in a vivid spectrum of misbehavior―from truancy to tattoos to trespassing. Here, in the underbelly of adolescence, music is God and the rest is a rush of nihilism. Gogo and her friends stumble through sound and fury into questionable firsts at varying degrees of sobriety. Many of us blunder through that black hole. It is a point of universal convergence, manifested by divergent experiences. Gogo’s rebellion may look different from yours, but the soaring highs and visceral lows will be familiar.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“So good it hurts…Witty, gritty, and flat-out addictive.” Emily France, author of Zen and Gone
“A synesthetic fireball of beauty, a gut punch in every line…Germaine has recreated the world of young, alternative women of the ’90s and their bonds with a grace and fury that it’s never had until now.” Alex DiFrancesco, author of All City
“With grit, heart, and punk spark, Glory Guitars is a seething anthem of teenage sex and explosive youth. Gogo Germaine is a voice of her generation, a shriek of darkness and life you never knew you needed but won’t ever forget.” Jason Heller, author of Strange Stars
“A vulnerability manifesto that refuses to be ignored…Heartbreaking and hilarious, all with the perfect soundtrack of sorrow and rage to boot, Germaine is brilliant at masterminding the art of storytelling.”  Hillary Leftwich, author of Aura, a Memoir
“A multisensory, tilt-a-whirl fun house adventure of guiltless teenage rebellion that formerly puritanical readers can live vicariously through, retroactively experiencing every school-ditch drunken escapade.” Amanda E. K., author of The Risk It Takes to Bloom

Author Bio: Gogo Germaine

Author Bio: Gogo Germaine

Gogo Germaine is a neurodiverse girl in a ’90s suburban world, born with a lollipop-swirl brain, goth-kitty heart, and lightning-bolt soul. She won the spelling bee and the D.A.R.E. essay contest in the sixth grade. She was voted “Most Unique” in the seventh grade. It was all downhill from there. The rest was the stuff of hysterical after-school specials: stealing cigs, shotgunning PBRs, snorting cocaine, sneaking punk boys into her pink bedroom, and listening to tinny car stereo tunes while glaring into the sun like a muscle-shirt dad.
