A young man must overcome a horrific past in order to release his inner demons in Justin Forest’s shocking new novel, Lolita in the Lion’s Den. Glen has fought for years to escape a brutal home life, one in which he acts as his mother’s only friend and to accept that his father has been molesting his sister for over a decade. But after dropping out of high school and spending years working aimless jobs, Glen finally turns a new chapter when he enters the thrill of college life. But with that freedom comes disturbing sexual desires and inclinations. Having become increasingly reliant on his own fantasy world, Glen soon finds himself mired in the world of adult pornography and struggling with his attraction to both women and girls. Haunted by the damage his father’s actions wrought on his family and other victims, Glen must come to terms with his admiration for the exact thing his father so actively destroyed. More relevant than ever in today’s hypersexualized world, Lolita in the Lion’s Den is an emotionally provocative read that gets to the heart of some of society’s most pressing issues.

From the Back Cover:

A troubled young man must find a way to navigate his hypersexualized world in Justin Forest's riveting new novel, Lolita in the Lion's Den or Pre-Tween Juxtaposition.
 
Glen has always been an outcast. Born into an emotionally abusive household, where his mother relies on him as her only confidante and his father is a child molester, his sense of self-hatred only fuels the isolation he experiences both at home and at school.
 
Finding relief from the harsh realities of the world through increasingly vivid fantasies, Glen has finally had enough.
 
Quitting school and fleeing home, he drifts from one aimless job to the next as he wrestles with this attraction to both women and girls.
 
Fearing he will one day become like his father, Glen must come to terms with the person he truly is in order to learn how to become the person he wants to be.
