Sintesi dell'editore

From one of the most highly celebrated and dynamic American writers of our time comes Spider Kiss, Harlan Ellison's electrifying novel of the early years of rock and roll.

If you think the only thing Ellison writes is speculative fiction, craziness about giant cockroaches that attack Detroit, or invaders from space who look like pink eggplant and smell like chicken soup, this dynamite novel of the emergent days of rock and roll will turn you around at least three times. No spaceships, no robots, just a nice kid from Louisville named Stag Preston with a voice like an angel, seductive moves like the devil, and an invisible monkey named Success riding him straight to hell.

Not My Favorite of Ellison's Work

Any additional comments?

I'm a big fan of Ellison's speculative fiction, and this ended up disappointing. It's a pretty standard raise to fame/fall from grace story, and I didn't get much out of it.

Mostly, I just wish Audible would get the rights to the Voice from the Edge collections.

This is a fable

If your looking for a story that’s cut and dry aka a Hollywood style story you won’t find it here. It’s dirty it’s nasty it’s ugly and it’s great. My current favorite line from the book is currently “she had the heart of a popsicle”

Superb

This is a truly excellent novel. Brilliantly written and excellent performed. The story, characters, setting and plot are all beautifully communicated.
