Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


In a Shot of Malaria, Charles Souby unfolds the twisted story of a young man, Daniel Martin, desperately hooked on heroin, alcohol and his own delusions. Set in San Francisco in the nineties and written as a deadpan, first-person narrative, the novel captures and ugly realities of addiction with sharp, ironic humor.

A powerful, empathetic study of place and character with great depth.

-Kirkus Review

Definitely a book that will make you smile and think, Charles Souby has given readers a thoughtful experience with A SHOT OF MALARIA."

-Cyrus Webb conversations live

Readers will find a wealth of wisdom in these pages. As Danny notes: "We were both suicidal, but it wasn't the dying that scared us, it was the living."

-Blue Ink Review

Souby manages to make Martin, ...completely appealing and sympathetic. ...While I think some of its content might offend the squeamish, it's a book that I believe will resonate with readers who stick with it. We might not all be heroin addicts, but we all have our stuff, whatever that stuff is."
