"When your car is spinning out of control heading for the guard rail, you have all the time in the world."

Losing her nerve and burning out fast, hardcore lesbian performance artist Jam has trouble coping with the outside world. Her best friend and former lover, Roz thinks Jam's losing it, big time. Her doctor thinks Prozac is the answer.

Meanwhile, Jam finds love, comfort and support from ThisIsCrazy, a talk room on the internet, where she trades messages and shards of hard-bitten wisdom about treatment and withdrawal with the likes of Fruitbat, Junior and D'isMay. Tough, funny and sexy, Prozac Highway packs a sweet punch. Think Tales of the City in cyberspace and click onto this dazzling literary breakthrough.

Persimmon Blackbridge, is a writer, performer, sculptor, cleaning lady and member of the notorious lesbian art collective, Kiss & Tell. She is the winner of the VIVA award for visual art (1991) and a Lambda literary award (with Kiss & Tell, 1995). Her previous books include an illustrated novel, Sunnybrook: A True Story with Lies (1996), and the controversial Her Tongue On My Theory (with Kiss & Tell, 1994), a collection of erotic images and analysis of lesbianism.

"A beautiful portrait ... Blackbridge writes humorous, intimate, wonderfully restrained prose perfectly attuned to her narrator's vivid inner life ... a tour be force."?Publishers Weekly
