OVERVIEW: He claims hes not a fan of rock-and-roll, but somehow Harlan Ellisons seminal novel based on the career of Jerry Lee Lewis ended up in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. One of the first - and still one of the best - dissections of the wildly destructive rock-and-roll lifestyle, Spider Kiss isnt about giant cockroaches that attack Detroit or space invaders that smell like chicken soup. Instead, its the story of Luther Sellers, a poor kid from Louisville with a voice like an angel whos renamed Stag Preston by a ruthless promoter. Prestons 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. This raucous early novel reinforces Ellisons reputation as one of Americas most dynamic writers.
