Summary

'If a tree falls in a forest and Jon Bon Jovi is with you when it happens, is it still a figment of your imagination?'

Johnny Ruin is a literary novel that explores themes of heartbreak and mental health. The novel is set in the mind of the narrator, a surreal United States where each state is a new state of mind: lust, anger, jealousy.

Haunted by the idea that he is somehow broken, the narrator, a depressed 30-something writer, embarks on a trip through his own mind with his spirit guide, Jon Bon Jovi, for company. As they explore his memories, fantasies, and imagination, we learn he attempted suicide after a recent heartbreak.

From the redwoods of California to a crumbling New York City, the road trip travels the highways of the narrator's memory, an ever shifting landscape where fact and fiction rewrite each other. When his ex-girlfriend turns up demanding she be allowed to leave his mind, he has to decide whether to fix himself or engineer an escape for the one memory he's clinging to.
