5th and Vanguard is set in a seaside town called Berle, and narrated by Julie Page, an ex-junkie and writer who, three years earlier, retired her writing (and other addictions) for more conventional means of survival. But inspiration pays a call one windy night at the corner of 5th and Vanguard in front of Bob's Liquor Palace as a glamorous, disfigured old woman emerges from a Cadillac, and Julie is given another chance at taking chances.

This darkly comic mystery explores the pock-marked inner and outer worlds of its heroine as she faces her fears in an effort to recover her muse. 5th and Vanguard is a story of chemical, emotional, and artistic addiction, and the price paid to stay inspired.
