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. "Laurie Weeks's Zipper Mouth is a short tome of infinitesimal reach, a tiny star to light the land." - Eileen Myles, author of Inferno "Zipper Mouth is a brilliant rabbit hole of pitch-black hilarity, undead obsession, the horror of the everyday, and drug, drugs, drugs." - Michelle Tea, co-founder of Sister Spit "Brash, exuberant…recalls Naked Lunch and imparts a fresh, lyrical sympathy…Dreamy, impressionistic, and rapturous…an ecstatic love story.” - Publishers Weekly Best Reading Series" - The Gothamist, 2011
