A bit uneven and scattered in parts, but pretty hilarious (unless you're my German mother, who didn't even think A Confederacy of Dunces was funny. And if you are my German mother, you should definitely avoid reading this book, even though the authors dedicated it to their moms. I don't have the energy for your guaranteed enraged rants on "how could you possibly read this, this FILTH! No! This is the product of diseased brains and I seriously think these people should be locked up!" After all, y ...more

So I've been reading Wrath James White books now for several years and this one has always been on the 'to read' list as I've never been able to get an affordable copy. But that has now changed.

This book follows Gloria, an aging porn star who's career has taken a turn for the worse as she finds herself having to do more extreme films in order to pay for her drug addiction. However she's going to have to go through hell and back if you wants to turn her life around and right her wrongs.

Thanks to Deadite Press, this title will be available again. That is how I was able to finally get my hands on it. If you thought Wrath was intense, then you have not seen anything yet. This tome follows a used up porn star's decent into the deepest abyss literal and figuratively and her struggles therein. Along the way our senses are assaulted in only the way Wrath James white can and that is mercilessly and endlessly. Not for the squeamish.

Recommends it for: Horror (adult)
POISONING EROS (w/ Monica J O'Rourke) is a fantastic read. Although filled with depraved sex, IMO it's there to provide the motivation of the storyline - not for the gross-out shock value.

I've heard rumours of a sequel . . . I'm hoping that those rumours are true.

This book was my own personal Holy Grail of disturbing literature. I finally got to enjoy this nugget and finished it tonight. It did not disappoint. Of course, there were things that I didn't care for, but overall, I enjoyed this book more than words can say!

What can I say no matter how many of Wrath's books I read he never fails to entertain me. Excellent author!
