    On the heels of The Speed Chronicles (Sherman Alexie, William T. Vollmann, Megan Abbott, James Franco, Beth Lisick, etc.) and The Cocaine Chronicles (Lee Child, Laura Lippman, etc.) comes The Heroin Chronicles, a volume sure to frighten and delight. The literary styles are varied, as are the moral quandaries herein. Heroin has long been understood as the most "literary" of narcotics, and this collection will, for better and worse, have tremendous pop cultural appeal.

    Lloyd has a particular set of skills. He writes the small print for prescription drugs, marital aids, and incontinence products. The clients present him with a list of possible side effects. His job is "to recite and minimize" sometimes by just saying them really fast and other times by finding the language that can render them acceptable. The results are ingenious. The methods diabolical. Lloyd has a habit, too. He cops smack during coffee breaks at his new job writing copy for Christian Swingles, an online dating service for the faithful.

    Jerry Stahl racconta le avventure di un uomo che nel proverbiale autunno dei suoi anni o, quantomeno, nel pre-autunno, scopre che la sua ragazza è incinta. E che diventerà padre. Nuovamente. Soltanto che questa volta vuole riuscirci nel modo giusto: senza eroina, e con un sacco di mal di schiena in più. Con questo libro Stahl torna a offrirci il suo stile confessionale, autobiografico e sporco, quello che ha contribuito ad alimentarne il culto a partire da Mezzanotte a vita.
