Description: Based on the real-life trial of the Menendez brothers and written with visceral, apocalyptic force, Gary Indiana's critically acclaimed novel is a dark comedy of manners that takes as its subject nothing less than the complete and total dissolution of society and the justice system.

Seth, a New York journalist is on assignment in Los Angeles to cover the infamous trial of two adolescent boys accused of blowing away their wealthy parents in their Beverly Hills mansion. The novel follows Seth as he maneuvers among the bizarre chorus of characters that make up modern-day Los Angeles, including a judge with obsessive/compulsive disorder, a witness with Tourette's syndrome, a taxi driver/screenwriter with AIDS, a budding serial-killer gigolo, and a name-dropping society novelist. "Resentment" is not only hilariously toxic satire that skewers various gargoyles of southern California with deadly precision and dark wit, " writes Patrick McGrath, "it is also a rattling good story, generated and furiously driven forward by a moral vision that is new to American fiction."
