Spider Kiss – nick & dent

Price: 6.47

He claims he’s not a fan of rock-and-roll, but somehow Harlan Ellison’s

chicken soup. Instead, it’s the story of Luther Sellers, a poor kid from
Louisville with a voice like an angel who’s renamed Stag Preston by a
ruthless promoter. Preston’s meteoric rise on the music scene is matched
only by the rise in his enormous appetites–and not just for home cooking–and
soon the invisible monkey named Success is riding him straight to hell.

most dynamic writers. • Originally published in 1961 as Rockabilly
, this is the novel’s first appearance as a single volume in more than
