An American Demon: A Memoir Wikipedia
This novel is based on the life of Jack Grisham, best known as the lead singer for the popular 1980s punk band T.S.O.L.
The plot partially revolves around the author's life, but also delves into side topics such as religion and politics.
Grisham wrote the book while living in an office overlooking Huntington Beach, California. Reportedly the location was without any modern conveniences and as such was deemed an 'illegal' residence.ZZZlist interview
