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.
