“Caveworld is weird and funny and melancholy and true in the ways all good books are. With a dizzy-eyed, full-hearted trip from Queens to San Diego to god knows where, Gnade reminds you what it feels like to be alive. For better and worse.” – Erik Henrikson, The Portland Mercury
“…this book Caveworld is amazing, it’s kinda like a modern day, punk rock, John Steinbeck East of Eden. Which I love. I highly recommend it.” – Nick Buxton
“A milestone. What Kerouac’s On the Road must’ve felt like to people receptive to its message when it was first published, and, odder still, a book that feels long overdue.” – Christopher Snyder
Adam Gnade’s second novel, Caveworld, is a howl of desperation as its characters fight to find love and meaning in a society with which they feel out of step. Richly encyclopedic and set in the twin border towns of Tijuana and San Diego, the book tells two love stories separated by a gulf of twenty years. Caveworld is made up of the various events (both subtle and seismic) that change lives in an instant.
