About the Book

In Brooklyn, New York, during November 2013, Ali Eskandarian was murdered alongside two members of his band the Yellow Dogs. In the months leading up to this terrible event, Ali had been in correspondence with a publisher, about a semi-autobiographical novel he had written.

Golden Years is that book, and tells the story of a group of young Iranian musicians in Brooklyn who are hungry and poor, high and hopping from bed to bed. A fictional document from a life cut tragically short, Golden Years is the story of youth, hope and beat psychosis.

“Gripping and poignant . . . A beat novel, which demands to be compared with Jack Kerouac's On the Road, as well as Hunter S Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Jay McInerney's Bright Lights, Big City.”
- Marcel Theroux, Guardian
“This haunting, rough diamond of a novel glints with searing images as it takes the reader on an extraordinary, intense journey through emotional and psychic extremes. Along the way, at its best, it alchemises “a thoroughly lonesome feeling” into some exquisite passages of prose.”
- Anita Sethi, Observer
