Tony O'Neill

Sick City (Harper Perennial)

Tony O'Neill will return to Skylight Books to read from and sign his newest novel, Sick City! Cisco wine (which has been described as "liquid crack," and which is featured in the novel) will be served.

"Sick City is fun, twisted and brutal. One of the best books written about LA in a long time. O’Neill could be our generation’s Jim Thompson." --James Frey (A Million Little Pieces, Bright Shining Morning)

"Fans of Chuck Palahniuk and Warren Ellis will cherish this twisted tale." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Tony O'Neill writes about the Hollywood I know as well as any writer alive. His characters are a punch in the face, scorchingly real. His dialogue is note-perfect and could only have been lived in the moment-by-moment life of one who has sat on a curb and pondered his next jive and shuck while searching for cigarette butts." --Dan Fante (Chump Change, Mooch, Spitting Off Tall Buildings)

Tony O'Neill’s books include Digging the Vein, Down and Out on Murder Mile, and the New York Times bestselling Hero of the Underground (which he co-authored).  He is also the co-author of Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway, by Cherie Currie.  O'Neill's essays, poems, and short stories have appeared extensively online and in print. He is a survivor of heroin addiction, crack abuse, rehab, fatherhood, and stints in the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Kenickie, and Marc Almond's band. He lives in New York with his wife and daughter.
