Selected by Dave Eggers for "Best American Nonrequired Reading."

"Laurie Weeks' "Zipper Mouth" is a short tome of infinitesimal reach, a tiny star to light the land."Eileen Myles, author of "Inferno"

"Brash, exuberant recalls "Naked Lunch" and imparts a fresh, lyrical sympathy Dreamy, impressionistic, and rapturous an ecstatic love story. "Publishers Weekly"
"Embarrassment, fear of rejection and all its associated paralysis consume our protagonist whilst the liberating effects of hedonism affect the story by degrees. The result is a beautiful telling of psychosis (drug-induced and otherwise) that is painfully honest and depressingly funny. Another good book for anyone keen to laugh at the tragedy of existence (who isn t?) and to savour the talents of a bright, new literary force." "AnOther Magazine"
