Available Now :: Naked Defiance by Patrik Sampler


Naked Defiance by Patrik Sampler is available today!

Following a turn-of-the-century radical art group, this compelling novel unfolds as a report on the mysterious death of the group’s leader while in police custody, as written by one of its members, Florian Moore (probably a pseudonym). Tensions mount as the group, and their public performances, are threatened by increasingly disturbing disruptions.

Laced with paranoia and dark social commentary, Naked Defiance “comes as a welcome and necessary challenge to the miserable logic of capitalism” according to Angie Abdou.
