From the illicit pharmaceutical underworld of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District to a nightmarishly bizarre movie set in booming Las Vegas, from the urban-industrial hideout of militant black revolutionaries to a botched backyard lynching by Texas frat boys, Orange Rain hurtles from one stunning scene to the next. It sways between the hilarious and the hideous, exploring myriad dark places in America where the two intersect. It is an ode to humans' ability to endure in the face of horrific suffering. A celebration of feminine strength and spirit.
Orange Rain is rife with humor darker than the Marlboro Man’s coffee (and his lung cancer). It is not quite like any other book you've read.
