From the Publisher
Confessions of a Sex Maniac, Henry Miller Award Finalist, is old-school, new millennium, hard-boiled noir. A low-level bagman sex maniac hunts the ravenous and deadly Snow Leopard deep into the seedy groin of San Francisco's Tenderloin, where he has to choose. Sex or death? If Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, James Ellroy had a three-way, Confessions of a Sex Maniac would be their bastard love child.
David Henry Sterry is the bestselling author of thirteen books. His last book, Hos, Hookers, Call Girls & Rent Boys, was an anthology of writings by people in the sex business, and appeared on the front cover of the Sunday New York Times Book Review. He is the author of The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published, and co-founder of The Book Doctors, who have helped dozens of amateur writers become professionally published authors. His first memoir Chicken has been published in ten languages. The one-man show debuted internationally at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and Sterry toured the world with it. He has ghostwritten books about from the teenage brain to how to have a successful sleep-over. He is an ex-sex addict, ex-limousine driver, ex-drug addict, ex rent boy, ex-marriage counselor, ex-strip-club-barker, ex-sitcom actor, ex-Chippendales MC, ex-TV pitchman, a book doctor, an activist and was offered a professional soccer contract when he was 21. This book is not a memoir.
“Eye-opening, astonishing, brutally honest and frequently funny... unpretentious and riveting — but also graphic, politically incorrect and mostly unquotable in this newspaper.”—The New York Times Sunday Book Review (front page review)
"When David Henry Sterry writes about sexuality, it's like a chef writing about food.”—nerve.com
“Stunning... Sterry’s prose fizzes like fireworks. Every page crackles... Very easy and exciting to read--as laconic as Dashiell Hammett, as viscerally hallucinogenic as Hunter S Thompson. Sex, violence, drugs, love, hate, and great writing all within a single wrapper. What more could you possibly ask for?” –The Irish Times
“Sterry writes with comic brio ... [he] honed a vibrant outrageous writing style and turned out this studiously wild souvenir of a checkered past.” – Janet Maslin, The New York Times
