Review of Raking the Dust

final working rtd

“Alex is a New York native living in Taos, New Mexico. Divorced dad, jobless (except for a part-time gig dressing as Spiderman) and sleeping on couches, he is devoted to one thing above all, his writing. When Alex meets songstress DJ, his creativity takes a turn toward a more kinky variety as he becomes nearly obsessive about their sexual experimentation. Following her to San Francisco, events get stranger and Alex learns that DJ is no ordinary femme fatale.

Author Biscello seamlessly shifts dimensions and manipulates reality all while keeping the narrative moving forward into richer depths. As an added bonus, he reveals a little-known side of the famous artists’ colony, Taos, the inside jokes and seedy underbelly that only a local can know” — Johanna DeBiase, author of Mama & the Hungry Hole
