Described as "Sid and Nancy meets On the Road " Katelan V. Foisy's memoir, Blood & Pudding takes you into a world of obsessive compulsive relationships, drug addiction, first loves, and untimely death.  Written in scrapbook form it contains transcribed road trip tapes, journal entries, letters, and stories of two psychonuerotic cousins looking to live as hard and fast as they can in the shortest amount of time.
