9781511672542: A Polyester Smoothie: The Life and Times of Porn King John Holmes and the Wonderland Murders

To the ladies of the adult film industry of the 1970s and 80s, John Holmes was a polyester smoothie; a real charmer, a silver tongued devil and a thief of hearts. But behind the scenes, John was a little boy in a man's body who used sex and drugs and alcohol to fill the void that had been empty all of his life; someone to love and someone to love him. He tought he'd finally found true love in a young girl named Dawn, and she eventually moved in with Holmes and his sympathetic wife, Sharon, though drugs soon changed the dynamic to erratic behavior: Holmes beat and prostituted Schiller before she fled, and he became entangled in the so-called Wonderland murders of 1981. A POLYESTER SMOOTHIE examines John Holmes life from BEHIND the scenes, without all of the hoopla that led to him being hailed as the 'King of Porn.' As one former porn fan so eloquently put it, "I say to the porn world, and all the people who idolize him, you're idolizing this person who was horrid, and if you're going to have a hero, get someone else."

About the Author:

Brian Lee Tucker is a true crime buff who plays when he should be working, works when he should be sleeping, eats when he should be exercising, and writes far less frequently than all of those books on writing say he should. Still, he manages to pursue his dream of becoming a writer. He lives in Southern Indiana with a very independent but sweet natured cat named Little Boy, who helps him ‘edit’ his manuscripts by jumping on the keyboard when he’s not looking. Thanks to Amazon Kindle, his dreams of becoming a published true crime writer have finally come true.
