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."
--Cameron Pierce, author of Ass Goblins of Auschwitz
"I read Killing Poppy with fingers over my eyes and while clenching my teeth; William Perk has given us disturbing, addictive story-telling at it's finest, and I couldn't look away."
--Elle Stanger, writer at stripperwriter.com and podcast host at strangebedfellowspdx.com
