    1. Let It Bleed is the debut novel by author S.L. Schmitz, and a truly unique one. Set in the 1980's underground punk scene in Middle America, this story is not for the casual reader. Much of it is written in a very stream of consciousness way. The story is at times dark and very raw, other times almost ethereally beautiful. The Dead Girl is a drugged out punk girl, drifting along the brink of insanity, a Virgin Mary unlike anything most of us could imagine. Her Joseph is the lead singer of a local [...]

    2. First off, this is not a book that's going to have wide appeal. The text is a dense conglomerate of prose and poetry, working together to create a textural impact rather than a linear flow. And it takes a chapter or two to get into this way of writing. It's not easy. Hats off to Schmitz for offering us a Gothic-style Ginsberg-esque retelling of the Madonnna and Christ tale. The tale itself can be viewed on two levels: one, that of urban fantasy, the other that through the lens of a narcotics-ske [...]

    3. A gnostic 80's gothic retelling of the Mary and Joseph story, written in lush, liquid prose. This time the Madonna is the punky inhuman Dead Girl, and her Joseph is the young, somewhat abusive goth rocker the Razorblade Boy. Cosmic and surreal, recommended for fans of dark fiction and literary horror.

    4. Basically a goth-re-telling of the Gospel, S.L. Schmitz's LET IT BLEED takes place in the early 80s in middle America, in the middle of an already established post-punk/industrial music scene (there's references to countless bands in the early chapters).A young, drug-addicted punk known as "The Dead Girl" is pregnant with the Messiah while her boyfriend ("The Razorblade Boy") sings for a a punk band (and doesn't exactly treat her like the new Mother of God). Described as having a voice that's "p [...]

    5. My 2 cents:Well, what can I say for this fantastic book that has not been said yet. I could not put this book down no matter how much I had to. What a different take on life. I enjoyed the deep thoughts and funny parts. Why? Totally different book for me and loved the 80's gothic style. Each chapter has its own purpose and great reading it is.

    6. Ok, I might be a little bias as this is one of my dearest friends, but when Steph writes, you'll see everything in your mind's eye. She can turn a phrase and weave a story with the best of them. To me, this book is quintessential Stefferbeth! :)

    7. Let It Bleed blew my little mind apart in all the best ways. The author's writing style flowed so perfectly and I was mesmerized by how seamlessly imagery transitioned from paragraph to paragraph. I was spellbound and intrigued by this novel.
