Killing Poppy by William Perk
"Killing Poppy is about a heroin addict attempting to kick his addiction with the aid of an angel sent to help him. The catch: the angel is an amoral for-hire schlub. The result: an extremely funny, deeply strange, and surprisingly violent book with a raw human heart beating at the center of it. It's a chaotic ride, but William confidently controls the chaos."
William Perk is a recovering heroin addict who grew up in Portland, OR. After catching scabies at Hooper Detox and being diagnosed Bipolar 1, he began to funnel his insanity into a satirical performance art project called Save Portland From Hell. William taught English in Thailand and currently resides in Portland. This is his first book.
