About the novel
 
13516669_258152327885522_3315739699535796428_nRam and Gummo have six hours to incite a riot, vandalize an art gallery, and torch a tree. They have six hours to avenge, and honor, their friend and cousin, who died when a drunk driver plowed their car into a tree. But things don’t always go as planned, and as their plans continually backfire, they encounter a woman, Bettie, who saves them from arrest—on one condition: they take her along.
 
Through chaos and violence, through comedy and tragedy, they despair in their attempt to honor their dead friend, to honor him in an unconventional way. When Bettie takes control of the group and convinces them to help her deal with an abusive ex-boyfriend, the situation grows complicated, culminating with the intervention of the police. But Ram and Gummo won’t go to jail without a fight. And they’re willing to do whatever it takes to burn that tree.
Bastard Virtues is a novel that’s chaotic and wild, but in all the right ways. The book starts in the middle of Ram and Gummo trying to incite their riot, and quickly escalates from there onwards. As the novel continues, things swiftly begin to spiral. When things don’t go according to plan, Ram and Gummo are impulsive and brash; often leading them to bad, drug-induced decisions that put them at risk. But that is half the fun of Bastard Virtues. There’s a really enjoyable unpredictability about the book that sets it apart.”

He has written for several websites, including PopMatters and Film Threat, and he was, briefly, an editor for the journal, Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens.
 
“Like David Lynch, Daulton Dickey has found a language to articulate the obscenity of the unreal, itself the confluence of the perversion of capitalism and the seduction of technology and popular entertainment.” — Slavoj Žižek
