Love Without

Jerry Stahl (Author)
Available

Description

From the bestselling author of the memoir Permanent Midnight and the novel I, Fatty comes a long-awaited collection of short stories. Jerry's Stahl's perverse, yet often touching tales, many of which first appeared in publications ranging from Playboy to the Pushcart Prize to Best Erotic Fiction, plumb the depths of eccentric romance, sex-starved adolescence, mid-life crisis, and family dysfunction. From a teenager's tryst with a recently widowed middle-aged woman on an airplane, to a dissatisfied dentist's attempt to find freedom on the road with a much younger woman, all the way to an intensely erotic love affair between an ex-junkie and an ex-circus midget with a sexual obsession with vegetables, this collection never fails to arouse and surprise. With a disarmingly immediate prose style, Stahl finds great eroticism, humor, and humanity in the wildest of encounters.

Reviews

"Stahl's brilliantly demented riffs deserve to be read--or screamed--aloud."
An unexpected collection of darkly comic, erotic short stories by "the American hipster bard" -- James Ellory
"Stahl has earned the blurbs he's picked up along the way from James Ellroy, Hubert Selby, Jr., and Jim Carroll, and has the right to be counted in their skanky, stylish company....A better-than-Burroughs virtuoso."
