Ari Rosenschein discusses and signs Coasting


Perched between Middle Men and A Visit From the Goon SquadCoasting follows music-industry aspirants, a brooding record store clerk, goth teens, and others into rehearsal rooms, 12-step meetings, a cult indoctrination, even a Russian heavy metal bunker. Along the way, they pursue success, connection, and a sense of purpose. 

Dreamers, schemers, addicts, innocents. They are all coasting. 


“Ari Rosenschein’s Coasting does for Gen Y punks and rockers seeking artistic fame and glory in Los Angeles roughly what Candide did for—and to—its naïvely optimistic protagonist. A superb debut collection.” -Peter Selgin, author of Life Goes to the Movies and The Inventors
