Tom Hansen is the author of the memoir, American Junkie. His first novel, This Is What We Do, is available now, published by Emergency Press.
“Hansen’s debut novel covers even wilder, trickier ground than his memoir, American Junkie. Anti-hero James Nethery seems an ordinary, lonely man drinking Coke at the bar, until he meets “Lily,” a Ukrainian prostitute, and what began as a quiet, atmospheric meditation on down-and-out expats in Paris explodes into a nonstop, genre-blending noir-crimevigilante-political-sexy-nihilistic-almost surreal thrill ride, infused in equal measures with brutality and beauty.”
