I am pleased to announce that the novel on which my film No Alternative is based has been rereleased by Kettle of Letters Press.

This special edition features a foreword by actor Harry Hamlin, who plays the role of Judge William Harrison in the film, and an afterword in which I delve into the behind-the-scenes of the film.

Kirkus Reviews writes, “[The novel] is a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in ’90s music. Reflective, unafraid of big-picture pronouncements–‘nothing is more do-it-yourself than suicide.’ The cool, casual tone results in knockout diagnoses of the ’90s teenage condition: ‘You feel older as a teenager than you will ever feel in your entire life.'” The new edition is the perfect companion piece to both the film and the soundtrack; if you want to dig deeper into the early ’90s, take a spin through this book. I recently wrote about the adaptation process on, specifically how the story started as a screenplay, evolved into a book, and finally circled back to a screenplay. Read the article here.

The novel is available in both Paperback and Kindle on Amazon:
