The New York scene of the late 1980s comes to life in this powerful novel about three teenagers coming to terms with the death of a friend.
Vermont, New Year's Eve, 1987. All Jude wants to do is get high. All Teddy wants to do is get out. One of them won't live to see 1988.
In the wake of this death, three teenagers will try to find a way of honouring their lost friend. Is clean living the answer? Is parenthood? Or the simplicity of carrying out a last wish?
Winding its way through Vermont, New York, the Straight Edge music scene and the early days of the AIDS epidemic, Ten Thousand Saints is a fierce, brilliant depiction of all types of love and its flaws, of life, loss and pain; a profoundly human story that explores how one moment of carelessness can impact the lives of so many.
