Book Synopsis

You never forget your first sniff. Anyone who’s taken a huff of poppers remembers their first attempts. But few know the astonishing history of those mysterious brown bottles available in sex-shops, camouflaged behind the dubious labels of ‘room odorizer’ and ‘VCR cleaner’.

Since their popularization in the late nineteenth century, poppers have metabolized into the lifeblood of queer culture, and can be spotted across both mainstream and fringe LGBTQ+ literature, film, music, pornography and comics; wafting from Studio 54 and Soho, to our bedside tables.

Deep Sniff is a rich account of a until-now under-acknowledged drug and the lives of those who use it, offering an expansive popular history of desire across time.
