Product description

Review

"A chainsaw cock of wit… blisteringly, endearingly honest… insightful and valuable. Very funny indeed." -- Dermod Moore, 'The Hot Press'

"Bloody good.... Simply some of the best writing on modern culture around." -- 'Gay Scotland'

"It bounces on your knee yelling ‘read me, read me. Brutal honesty and razor wit - a perfect feast. Quotable genius." -- Rainbow Network.com

"MAGNIFICENT.... every page has gem-like sentences that Zadie Smith would give her white teeth for." -- Suzi Feay, 'Independent on Sunday'

From the Publisher

Advance praise for SEX TERROR:

"BRILLIANT.... With surgical precision, Mark Simpson peels away the layers of modern masculine culture leaving few (if any) iconic figures unscarred. This book is certain to provoke and likely to offend; we would expect nothing less from one of the most important voyeurs of contemporary man-sex-life. Exhaustive and exhilarating... a must-read for those who long for those who belong and for those who like it wrong."

- Bob Mould, Musician, Songwriter, Producer (Husker Du, Sugar)

"When the culture of sex finally breathes its last Simpson will be there to deliver the eulogy with great zeal. And what a gloriously sardonic and insightful farewell it will be!"

- Glenn Belverio, ‘Dutch’ magazine.

"Setting common sexual sense on its ear, Simpson’s Swiftian proposals strike at an emotion dear to us: sexual desire. His anarchic mission is to free sex from sermonizing, convention, egoism, and cultural bias. But unlike Foucault, his deconstructing weapon is built of ribald humour and pot-shots at pretension. Simpson’s essays produce rancour and hilarious laughter, disbelief and delight. Some call him wonderful, and some call him outrageous, but I call him a true original and you shouldn’t miss this book."

- Bruce Benderson, author of ‘Pretending to Say No’ and ‘User’

"Mark Simpson is a skinhead Oscar Wilde, his bon mots are both alarming and amusing, getting up people's noses and inside their trousers with equal aplomb."

- Philip Hensher, author of ‘The Mulberry Empire’
