Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Fiction. What do Gary Condit, Woody Allen, and O.J. Simpson have in common with Leslie Cauldwell, protagonist of Nersesian's latest offering? They are Suicide Casanovas. Following the commercial success of his first three novels (MANHATTAN LOVERBOY, THE FUCK-UP, and DOGRUN), Nersesian's new novel is a psychosexual thriller, a dramatic departure from his youthful black comedies. Corporate attorney Leslie Cauldwell is middle-aged, handsome, and rich, but has only a few swipes left on his mental Metrocard. During a rough sex session, he garrotes his beloved wife; now he's an officially designated "sex offender," off on a bender, looking for love in all the wrong places. Across a landscape of S&M mistresses and porn producers, we see a modern-day tale of love and loss, innocence and corruption, crime and redemption.

Review:
WHAT DO BILL CLINTON, JAMES MCGREEVEY, WOODY ALLEN, MICHAEL JACKSON, AND OJ SIMPSON HAVE IN COMMON with Leslie Cauldwell, protagonist of Nersesian’s latest offering? They are Suicide Casanovas. What compels powerful men in the prime of their professional lives to risk so much? Following the commercial success of his first four novels, Suicide Casanova presents a psychosexual thriller, a dramatic departure from his youthful black comedies: Humbert Humbert without the pedophile penchant, Hannibal Lechter without the appetitite.

From the Publisher

Review:
"A vivid, compelling psychothriller, Suicide Casanova confirms Nersesian's place as one of New York City's most important chroniclers. His unique psychological vision of the city rates with those of Paul Auster and Madison Smart Bell."
BLAKE NELSON, author of Girl and User

"Sick, depraved, and heartbreaking--in other words, a great read, a great book. Suicide Casanova is erotic noir and Nersesian's hard-boiled prose comes at you like a jailhouse confession."
JONATHAN AMES, author of The Extra Man

"Nersesian has written a scathingly original page-turner, hilarious, tragic, and shocking--this may be his most brilliant novel yet."
KATE CHRISTENSEN, author of In the Drink

"A tight, gripping, erotic thriller."
PHILADELPHIA CITY PAPER
