About this title


In this hilariously perverse collection of essays, celebrated British writer and satirists Mark Simpson takes a wittily warped look at a fin de siecle world of pop culture where nothing is as straight -- or as gay -- as it seems.Along the way, Simpson goes in search of straight sex in London's Soho, interviews Oscar Wilde and discovers that he's perplexed by all those rumors about his private life and would like to set the record straight; gets trashed with some U.S. Marines in Tijuana and discusses with them the cultural significance of foreskins. And watches a groom being buggered by lesbian strippers at his stag night party.

About the Author:

He's the author of several critically acclaimed books including Male Impersonators and Saint Morrissey.
