Dr u gs J. R. Helton

Narrator Jake Stewart inimitably lampoons an America in which drug use is not just a part of the American mainstream, but may be one of the only sane responses to that mainstream. “J.R. Helton really speaks to me—starkly honest, darkly funny, acutely observant, and captures the tragic absurdity of human life. I love that. It’s not that common in literature. I think he’s right up there with the best of them.” —R. Crumb PAPER 978-1-60980-401-5 $15.95 256 pages

We follow Jake Stewart and his family as they struggle under his father’s draconian rule from the inner city through the sprawl of 1970s-era suburbia to the seemingly pristine countryside envisioned by Americans since the time of Thoreau.
