Bad Sex On Speed A Novel

by Jerry Stahl

Bad Sex On Speed A Novel Synopsis

Bad Sex On Speed is a savage, careening, hyper-real nightmare of a novel, taking us to the depths of Amphetamine America. Told with no concession to traditional narrative, in the voices of those in the grips and on the fringes, the stories that emerge are at once devastating, hysterical, and perhaps most terrifying of all going on all around you, all the time. Stahl digs deep into the psyche of the most demented and dispossessed among us, returning with a vision so unsparing that those not prepared to experience the screaming depths of speed psychosis up close and on the page should back slowly away and return to their lives unscathed.

Marc Maron A better-than-Burroughs virtuoso. The New Yorker Jerry Stahl's writing will flip you flip you for real. Benicio Del Toro
