San Francisco, 1993. The digital and pharmaceutical industries are booming. They’re looking for the young, the hip, and those on the counterculture fringe to be both the face and consumer of their new world order. Recruited by an advertising agency focused on targeting a new drug to her own age demographic, Sarah Striker is grateful for the steady income, but she begins to question the side effects of the products she’s pushing. She begins publishing an underground zine to expose the secrets behind the pharmaceutical industry’s aims. Fulfilled by her quest to spread the truth, her new life seems to be working out perfectly—until she realizes that she herself is perilously close to becoming a victim of this new corporate world.

A kinetic, hyperstylized jolt of pure energy, Herz delivers a strong follow-up to his debut novel, The Last Block in Harlem. Full of vibrant characters and razor-sharp dialogue, Pharmacology captures the voice of the Internet generation with style, heart, and soul.

    " I felt that this story about a young girl moving to the city to support her parents is admirable, but she did it in the wrong way. I felt that it was hard to even get through the book. The beginning was awful. "

    " Wonderfully written with well developed, interesting and intriguing characters. Provocative and thoughtful, it left me questioning my own values, ethics, opinions and feelings. I look forward to reading a 'Sarah-based', sequel ... An excellent,enjoyable and informational read. "

    " Ugh. The description should have been, "I am going to use a lot of catch phrases from the San Francisco sub-culture so you'll know I was really there." The description was completely misleading. The sub-culture could have been summed up in a few paragraphs. That era has been described so many times, and in a much better way that the book brings nothing new to the table. The obscure slang words "can" to refer to spray can of the graffiti artist or "zine" to refer to a underground magazine are totally overused. We get it - you were there. Couldn't finish. Wish I didn't waste my money. The only people that may enjoy this book are people that grew up in that culture. Should have read more reviews before I bought the book. "

    " An amazing book! It was a little slow starting for me, but so very worthwhile. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a book to pull them out of a "reading rut" and inspire them to search for books that don't fit easily into a typical category. "
