From Publishers Weekly:

Opening Shapiro's first novel, narrator Eddie Black tells his fellow truck driver, Vincent Minetta, how he'd like to eat a womanactually chew, swallow and consume her entire bodysex being tied to hunger, according to Eddie. Later that day, the two men argue with their boss, a New York butcher, Frank Popowski, whom Eddie kills when the man threatens him and Vincent. From that point, the story debauches into various events as Eddie and Vincent elude detection, for a while. Eddie revels in an erotic idyll with Charlotte, who shares his odd sexual appetites, but only briefly: she has a live-in lover, Margaret. Luckier in his career aspirations, Eddie lands a role in a popular TV soap, a rosy future that is blighted, however, by a crooked cop. The latter offers to shelve the Popowski case in return for a huge bribe from Eddie's rich gangster uncle. Bad thingsmore murders, mutilations, etc.keep happening to bad people as the author seems determined to strain the limits of the First Amendment. Film rights to Marcia Nasitir and Lorenzo Semple Jr.; major ad/promo.

From Library Journal:

Rendered in sharp, made-for-movie scenes, the action in this short novel kick-starts when Eddie Black, an actor working as a meat deliveryman, knifes his boss in an argument. What follows is not new but always suspenseful: Will Eddie's crime partner and co-worker, Vincent, bargain to save his own skin, or use the sinister, drug-dealing Luis to make sure Eddie doesn't confess? Will Eddie's handy mobster uncle be able to solve Eddie's problems with the shrewd self-serving detective Greenberg? Blackmail, revenge, a hot affair with a lesbian, an easy rise to fame as a soap opera "bad guy" where Eddie must deal with his guilt as he enacts scenes heavy-handedly mirroring his crimeall make this a fast-paced, erotic urban novel guaranteed to hook many general readers.
