JACK FRITSCHER'S AMERICAN MEN (55 PHOTOGRAPHS OF MASCULINE MEN FOR LADIES AND GENTLEMEN WHO PREFER MEN MASCULINE). The ultimate, beautiful, masculine-identified coffee-table photo book you'll want to keep under your bed. This is respectable art that has been known to provoke orgasm! 59 black-and-white photographs shot by Jack Fritscher.

Fritscher shoots hot men! Bears! Bodybuilders! Cowboys! Truckers! Young cops! Nudity, of course! YES! 4-Star reviews. Introduction by the prestigious British critic who brought you, from BRUSH CREEK MEDIA, the best-selling THE BEAR CULT photo book: Edward Lucie-Smith, the author of more than 30 books of art criticism, including: SEXUALITY IN WESTERN ART (1972 & 1971), ART TODAY (1996), and ARS EROTICA (1997). Includes naked full-page photographs of the real Mr America Chris Duffy/Sunset Bull, The Blake Twins, My Nephew/My Lover, Redneck Cowboy, Cowboy Bunkhouse Cigar, plus some artful bondage as well as smiling real men. NOTE: THIS IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT KIND OF MALE ART COFFEE-TABLE PHOTOGRAPHY BOOK, BECAUSE THERE ARE NO PICTURES OF MOUSSE-AND-CLONE GIRLYMAN MODELS LEANING IN SHADOWS HOLDING HULA-HOOPS. Each photograph is titled and thus contains its own kind of short-story. The photos actually relate to Fritscher's many published books of fiction! So wonderfully hot, it had to be published in London.

From the Author:

PHOTOGRAPHER'S FOREWORD

WATER FROM THE MOON (Ancient Japanese Saying Defining Something One Can Never Have)

On the title page of his dog-eared BILLY BUDD, Ryan wrote, in the most legible scribble of all his random notes, what must have come to him, suddenly, as a simple, illuminating, uninterrupted, crystal-line vision of sexual elegance.

That first night when I first saw Kick, I recognized one of life's long shots at the Perfect Affirmation.

He was a man.

He had a man's strength and fragility, a man's grace and intensity, a man's joy, and a man's passion. He seemed my last chance to celebrate the changes i me as growth. He was so fully a man, he was an Angel of Light.

To him I could say nothing by YES.

One thing, you see, I know for sure: Nature very rarely puts it all together: looks, bearing, voice, appeal, smile, intelligence, artfulness, accomplishment, strength, kindness. That's what I looked for all my life: the chance to say YES to a man like that.

I look in men for nothing more than that affirmative something that grabs you and won't let you look away. Maintaining my full self, to have some plenty to offer back in balance, I've looked for some man who fills in the appropriate existential blanks, for some man to be the way a man is supposed to be, for some man to keep on keeping on with, in all the evolving variations of friendship and fraternity, beyond the first night's encounter.

I've looked for that to happen: to be ale to say YES inside myself when a good, clean glow of absolute trust settles over the world.

Honest manliness is never half-revealed. When it's there, it's all right there in front of you. The hardest thing to be in the world today is a man.

Jack Fritscher Introduction to his photo book from his novel SOME DANCE TO REMEMBER

About the Author:

JACK FRITSCHER'S 400 published short stories and feature articles have appeared in more than 25 magazines and in several anthologies of "Best-of-the-Year" stories. Of his 5 books of fiction, his best-selling novel, SOME DANCE TO REMEMBER, has been named a classic comparable to novels by Gore Vidal and James Baldwin, and yet is popular enough that multiple critics have called it "the gay GONE WITH THE WIND." His newest collection of fiction is RAINBOW COUNTY AND OTHER STORIES; his new novel for 1998 is the romantic comedy THE GEOGRAPHY OF WOMEN. February 1998: A new collection of his previously published short stories entitled "CORPORAL IN CHARGE OF TAKING CARE OF CAPTAIN O'MALLEY AND OTHER STORIES." He is also the author of 4 nonfiction books, including the brilliantly scandalous MAPPLETHORPE: ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY CAMERA; LOVE AND DEATH IN TENNESSEE WILLIAMS, his doctoral dissertation; the Anton LaVey centered POPULAR WITCHCRAFT; and the media-savvy TELEVISION TODAY. He is a founding member of the American Popular Culture Association, and has taught creative writing and film for more than fifteen years at university. He is the recipient of both a Michigan Grant to the Arts and a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. His coffee-table photography book, published in England and titled JACK FRITSCHER'S AMERICAN MEN, is a completely progressive kind of photo art, because his pictures (each one a titled short story) are of actual American males with none of the usual coffee-table pics of mousse-and-clone models leaning in shadows holding hula-hoops. He is deeply established artist who is writer, photographer, and video director whose refreshingly eccentric work reflects sexuality, intellect, and real life lived in American popular culture.
