From the Publisher
Annotation In the spirit of Kurt Vonnegut or Joseph Heller, Harvey Jacobs brilliantly satirizes the pharmaceutical industry in his latest novel. Jacobs extends the current craze for pharmaceutical fixes to its logical end, as sickly Simon Apple finds himself relying on a never-ending spiral of prescription drugs, each one treating the side effects of the previous one. Now, Simon finds himself on death row, trying to reconstruct the bizarre sequence of events which led him there, each attributable to his dependence on the products of Regis Pharmaceuticals.
