WINNER OF A 2012 LAMBDA LITERARY AWARD

Selected by Dave Eggers for Best American Nonrequired Reading

In this extraordinary debut novel, Laurie Weeks captures the freedom and longing of life on the edge in New York City. Ranting letters to Judy Davis and Sylvia Plath, an unrequited fixation on a straight best friend, exalted nightclub epiphanies, devastating morning-after hangovers--Zipper Mouth chronicles the exuberance and mortification of a junkie, and transcends the chaos of everyday life.
