About this title


STILL LIFE WITH GENITALS is the hilarious debut novel by TV sitcom writer Gary Jacobs ("Newhart," "Empty Nest"). With a plot inspired by DAVID COPPERFIELD, STILL LIFE WITH GENITALS tells the tale of Alan Roxbury, whose life takes a bad turn literally from the moment of birth, when he is rejected by his mother, who desperately wanted a girl. Alan is doomed to spend his life looking for love in many of the wrong places.

The path that ultimately leads Alan to self-discovery is twisted in every sense. Stops along the way include an End Times religious cult, the college antiwar movement, a back-to-the-earth commune in Vermont, and a jail cell. Add to this a strange and unusual cast of characters: Alan's father, a traveling salesman who sees life largely in terms of road conditions; Karen, Alan's neighbor and best friend--a girl beset by an astonishing array of physical ailments; Reverend Lewiston, the plumber-turned-cult leader, who becomes Alan's abusive stepfather; James Longway, Alan's boarding school roommate, who introduces Alan to window peeking and masturbation; Strawberry, the beautiful and kinky antiwar activist; and many others.

STILL LIFE WITH GENITALS moves at breakneck speed, pausing only for laughs. Strap in and enjoy the ride!
