  • "Caveworld is weird and funny and melancholy and true in the ways all good books are. With a dizzy-eyed, full-hearted trip from Queens to San Diego to god knows where, Gnade reminds you what it feels like to be alive. For better and worse." - Erik Henrikson, The Portland Mercury

    "...this book Caveworld is amazing, it’s kinda like a modern day, punk rock, John Steinbeck East of Eden. Which I love. I highly recommend it." - Nick Buxton

    "A milestone. What Kerouac's On the Road must've felt like to people receptive to its message when it was first published, and, odder still, a book that feels long overdue." - Christopher Snyder

    Adam Gnade's second novel, Caveworld, is a howl of desperation as its characters fight to find love and meaning in a society with which they feel out of step. Richly encyclopedic and set in the twin border towns of Tijuana and San Diego, the book tells two love stories separated by a gulf of twenty years. Caveworld is made up of the various events (both subtle and seismic) that change lives in an instant.

    Gnade covers a lot of ground: sex and pervasive loneliness in teenage bedrooms, life-shaping horror in the Vietnam jungle, birth, school, work, marriage, depression, crime, murder, mood-flushed road trips crossing the continent, exile (whether on Mexican rooftop or country estate), and living rooms smoky with the sad and oft-times devastating absurdity of "sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll." Equally influenced by Joan Didion's West Coast storytelling, Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County, and James Joyce's early examinations of place, Gnade's Caveworld is an epic, sprawling saga of American life.

  • In his latest work of fiction, Locust House, San Diego-born author Adam Gnade writes about his homeland in the tradition of regionalists like Sherman Alexie and Willa Cather. Gnade’s California is a place of border clash, of a glimpse of stormy sea from a top coastal hills or rollercoasters, of ratty beach apartments and punk shows. A collaborative release by Three One G and Pioneers Press, this is a story that asks, “What does it mean to hold fast to your dreams, ethics, and beliefs while the whole world tries to tame you?”

Released by Three One G

1) Hello America
2) The Whole Lonesome Thing
3) The Ballad of Tom Bluefeather
4) You Got Mean
5) Supper's Waiting on the Table
6) This is the End of Something (But It's Not the End of You)

Amid the rampant distrust, dissatisfaction, and dissent in the United States during these times is the re-release by Three One G of Adam Gnade & The Hot Earth All-Stars’ AMERICANS, which seems not only particularly apt, but necessary. Here we see fractured lives in the form of three separate storylines– a companion to Gnade’s novel, Caveworld. Six songs are teeming with doubt (“we have kids/ but do our kids have us?”), depression (“are your friends dragging you down/ or were you down to begin with?”), isolation (“but what do you do when none of them speak for you?”). In the Southern Gothic dilapidated landscape, though, there is also hidden hope, self-salvation, kinship. “There’s no meaning of life, but there is meaning in life,” Gnade murmurs. It’s there among the somber blues, the windswept melancholy and yowling guitars, the ill-lit two-bit town imagery– you’ve only got to keep your ears to the hot earth.
