Blood: The New Red by David S. Grant is a tongue-in-check satrical look into the fashion world. The book is told from the viewpoint of Mickey, a male model, making his entrance into the fashion world after a stint as a porn star. Mickey gets caught up in a war between Paul Johnson and Sandy Johnson - two (non-related) fashion designers battling it out for the coveted spot of number one.
Mickey aligns with Paul Johnson against Sandy Johnson and Kung Fu Master, the homeless Japanese man that Sandy is remaking into a model. Amidst drugs, vintage wines, psychiatrists and deaths, Mickey has to decide whether or not to grow a conscious and put an end to the madness before anyone else dies.
The book is a dark comedy. It's a quick enjoyable read. The story is very campy and fun. I could see Bruce Campbell playing a part in the movie. It was a quick read, and as long as you aren't expecting something too serious, you will like it. It was a perfect way to take my mind off work during my lunch break.
**This book is not suitable for my young adult readers
