Motel Nirvana Melanie McGrath
Large Hardback 230 pages
Very good condition
A book about the New Age movement and its American heartland. It concerns the author's travels around the south-western United States of Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, and her encounters with some of that region's most unusual communities and individuals.


At night she took sleeping pills, which did not make her sleep, and during the day she took uppers, which did not make her feel awake. Often she would catch herself hallucinating on the journey into work. She lost her spatial sense, she saw everything in two dimensions and as though it were at a far distance. Each day seemed to pass as in a dream or a psychedelic trip, and this enlivened the boredom of the office routine. The morning would begin in a blue funk hangover from the effects of mogadon or tempazepam and grind towards afternoon in a pleasing swirl of pink and orange paper clips. By the end of the week she could scarcely recall her own name. No one seemed to notice. Her superiors would buzz in from time to time to deposit the week's memoranda on the mildewed stack, like blowflies leaving eggs on rotten meat. She never really cared to find out what they wanted, and they never troubled to tell her.
