From Up River and For One Night Only

Now or Never Publishing


From Up River and For One Night Only is not your typical rock ‘n roll novel. Sure, it’s full of wild misfits, day job drudgery, and dreams of stardom. But the real headliner here is Grubisic’s intoxicating, immersive language. It’s a cacophony of linguistic power chords, a picaresque road trip with no particular place to go. We have never seen a coming-of-age story quite like this one.” —Mark Sampson, author Sad Peninsula and The Secrets Men Keep
