An underground hit since the 1990s and currently in development as a feature film directed by and starring Christian Slater, Love Stories Are Too Violent For Me is ironic, iconic pulp served hot and fast, straight out of the emotionally gory grindhouse called Life. When a hard-drinking professional baseball player hires Vic Valentine to find a vanished lover, a troubling journey begins. The hunt leads Valentine down a twisting trail of decadence and danger that eventually takes him to the most unexpected place—the private eye's own past.

Review:

"Fast, funny and way ahead of the 'noir' curve." —Eddie Muller, author, Dark City: The Lost World of Film Noir

"As soon as I found this book I totally related to the main character and thought, 'This would make a great movie.' I'd never read anything like it." —Christian Slater, actor/filmmaker

“While it has all the trappings of Philip Marlowe by way of Race Williams, this book is an old fashioned (if slightly fractured) love story at heart . . . To tell more of the story is about as hopeless as, well, trying to explain the plot of a Marlowe or a Williams. It’s in the telling, in the characters, in the whirlwind pace.” —Bernard A. Drew, author, 100 Most Popular Contemporary Mystery Authors
