OVERRIDE

John Nichols

John Nichols's New Mexico Trilogy, inaugurated in 1974 with the publication of The Milagro Beanfield War, has grown from regional stature to national appeal, from literary radicals to cult classics. Beloved for his compassionate, richly comic vision and admired for his insight into the cancer that accompanies unbridled progress, Nichols is the author of novels and works of nonfiction. He lives in northern New Mexico.

The Nirvana Blues

John Nichols

The seventies are over. All across America, the overgrown kids of the middle class are getting their acts together and getting older. The once-tight Chicano community of Chamisaville is long gone, and the Anglo powerbrokers control almost everything. Joe Minver-faithful husband, loving father, and all-around good guy-is about to sink roots. There's only one hitch: money. To buy the land he works, he embarks on a coke scam that will net him the necessary bread. Joe is also about to embark on a series of erotic adventures with three headstrong women, bringing him face-to-face with the terrors (and absurdity) of the modern man-woman scene. This final volume in the New Mexico trilogy is, like its predecessors, a lusty, visionary novel that bls comedy and tragedy, reality and fantasy, terness and bite to illuminate some very troubling truths about America-truths no less pointed and accurate today than they were twenty years ago.
