Johnny Allan

Some brief overview of book

Alan and Amelia, a British couple in their early thirties, move to Queens, in New York and, in their apartment building, come across Allan, a twentysomething of Guinean roots who quickly becomes for them the exemplar of American youth: aimless, photogenic...looking for meaning in a world that seems to have already happened. After dropping his cell phone and shattering its screen, Allan decides not to replace it, a decision that leads to his beginning to reject some of the things his generation treats as sacred: chiefly, their penchant for “merging self-documentation and experience...having decided they prefer life flat to round.” In the spirit of The Great Gatsby, in Johnny Allan, Keller paints a new portrait of America and a new Lost Generation, a carnival of sensory delights, music, misapprehension and beauty.
