This novel of a young lesbian addict in '90s NYC "recalls Naked Lunch" with "dreamy, impressionistic, and rapturous" prose--"an ecstatic love story" (Publishers Weekly).
Written in the brash, fervent voice of the young and addicted, this debut novel from underground superstar Laurie Weeks "is a short tome of infinitesimal reach, a tiny star to light the land" (Eileen Myles).
Strung out on dope and unrequited love for her straight best friend, Jane, the novel's unnamed narrator zig-zags between glimpses of her childhood and early teens to the raw, super-caffeinated world of her present on the streets of New York. Chosen by Dave Eggers as Best American Nonrequired Reading and a winner of a 2012 Lambda Literary Award, this novel encapsulates the soaring highs and gritty lows of the junkie and the reckless intensity of love. "The book's pulse is evident on every page." (Lambda Literary)
"Zipper Mouth is a brilliant rabbit hole of pitch-black hilarity, undead obsession, the horror of the everyday, and drug, drugs, drugs." --Michelle Tea, author of Against Memoir
A selection by Dave Eggers for Best American Nonrequired Reading.
