Where I've written

The Night Before the Morning After

The Night before the Morning After is a rock and roll diary of Newman’s wild life and times. Beginning in Antibes, the story brings readers to New York, New Jersey, D.C., Paris, and Jordan. Between outrageous travel stories, improbable encounters, and scandalous romantic entanglements, Newman offers a behind-the-scenes expose and critique of life at an elite boarding school and at Princeton. It’s Salinger meets Easton Ellis meets Bukowski, written by and for the iPhone generation. It is at once a portrait, critique, and celebration of the American experience in the 21st century.

"Scott's writing is reminiscent to the great writers of decades past: Fitzgerald, Hemingway. The lustful moments and sometimes unrequited love in each chapter transcends time and makes the reader feel like a silent observer watching each moment of the story unfold from across the room. One of the greatest new writers of this generation. You will not want to put this book down. Mark my words, this kid has been and will continue to go places."

— Stacey Anderson, US
