From the back cover...,
This review is from: Love Without (Paperback)
"A teenage boy's mile-high tryst with a middle-aged widow... A love affair between a former junkie and an ex-circus midget... A salacious encounter with the vice-president... The meth-frayed chronicles of a born-again call girl...
In stories of startling breadth & immediacy, Jerry Stahl plumbs the depths of romantic obsession, sex-crazed adolescence, family dysfunction & other universals of American life. By turns vulgar & tender, wrenching & hysterical, Stahl mines his unique mix of savage humour, unflinching humanity & unlikely eroticism from the wildest of encounters. Written over the past 30 years, this collection demonstrates why Jerry Stahl's voice remains one of the most vital & uncompromising in contemporary literature."
