Smack Daddy

We can’t claim to be the authority on a whole lot, but we sure as hell know a thing or two about the hair-pulling, time-consuming writing process. In the past 30 years, one of the best voices in contemporary prose, Jerry Stahl -- Permanent Midnight author, ex-heroin addict, former pornographer, and washed-up TV writer -- has somehow managed to set aside quality time for his writing gig. His newest effort, Love Without, is a collection of touching and perverse tales written over the span of three decades. Stahl reads from and signs copies of the new book along with “gonzo journalist” Gene Gregorits, who will also be in attendance signing copies of his new work, Midnight Mavericks: Reports From the Underground.
