Juiced Lucid and Other Stories by Brian Luff
"Juiced Lucid is a condition whereby a person becomes so drunk that he or she literally “drinks themselves sober”. At this point they suddenly begin to make perfect sense, becoming almost super-coherent."
In this anthology a number of successful audiobooks by Brian Luff are for the first time released in the form of good old-fashioned printed words. One of them, “Don’t Cry for Me Ricky Villa” has been downloaded from iTunes over 50,000 times, and covers the period when Brian worked as a sports journalist - an experience that also came in very handy while writing the Olympic Games fantasy “Sex On Legs”.
The story “Stinkfish” was written more recently while Luff was having what he describes as a depressive episode while working for a creative agency in London. The unfinished and booze-soaked "Melton Thornaby" diaries are part of a fictionalised blog that Luff created while working as editor of the BBC's offical comedy web site.
