The Elvis Loop : A Memoir of Escape
by Jacob Gnarley




Overview -
Jacob Gnarley has whittled himself down to an empty hotel room. His pockets are blank swaths of cloth. His veins are hungry, having funneled his whole world down to twenty-dollar increments of death, stuffed into baggies and sold in handshakes. Jacob Gnarley drags his chains of addiction through the mud at the bottom of the bottom: Youngstown, Ohio in the final decade of the twentieth century. Street carps and sidewalk philosophers, bottom-feeders bottom-feeding... with friends like these, who needs a kick in the teeth? Based on a lifetime's worth of true stories, The Elvis Loop examines the gravity of decay that pulls at those flailing in the tar pits of heroin addiction, whose quicksand shoes lose footing when they're pulled under. With junk inside, we commit to slowicide. Jacob Gnarley scrambles to make it out alive.
