Join your host of Dialogue Susan Wingate this as she chats with Mike Sager, author of HIGH TOLERANCE (an urban fiction thriller).

In this artful page-turner, a beloved superstarlet, a controversial billionaire Hip Hop mogul, and a television writer/producer idled by a demoralizing strike are linked together improbably by murder, domestic heartbreak, a sex video . . . and their inclusion on a secret subscription list for an exclusive designer strain of medical marijuana. Over a span of three seemingly ordinary days and nights in Los Angeles, the world wobbles on its digital axis, and futures are forever changed.

High Tolerance is the second novel by the award-winning Rolling Stone and Esquire journalist Mike Sager, whose work has inspired a number of films, including the classic Boogie Nights. He summons his considerable descriptive and narrative powers—and three decades behind the scenes covering celebrities, gangs, drugs, and crime—to weave together a raw and insightful tale of complicated lives in the shifting racial landscape of turn-of-the-century Los Angeles, the dream factory from which the American Zeitgeist is exported around the globe.

Mike Sager is a bestselling author and award-winning reporter. He’s been called “the Beat poet of American journalism.” He has worked for Esquire magazine and won the American Society of Magazine Editors National Magazine award for profile writing. His column “Go Ask Sager” appears on Playboy mobile and on Kinja. He is the editor and publisher of The Sager Group, a consortium of multi-media artists and writers.
