Hurt people hurt people. Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer's assistant and somehow, they met in Bright Lights, Big City. He's blinded by love, she by ambition. Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious and heartrending novel, but above all, a very realistic account of whatwe do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.
The story continues with Anonymous retooling his advertising skills to seduce women online. It’s a pursuit that quickly becomes a dangerous fixation requiring even more creativity and deception than his award-winning ad campaigns. Dazzling, daunting, and darkly hilarious Chameleon in a Candy Store is a spectacular indictment of modern love twisted beyond recognition.
You’ve never seen romance do this before. So brutally honest and breathtakingly perverse you’ll want to throw this book at the wall, but you’ll also want to know if it can possibly get any more disturbing. (It can and it does). And as you start to wonder whether men and women were ever even meant to be together a surprise ending brings the trilogy full circle and provides unexpected closure to an issue raised by a certain photographer's assistant in the first book. Eunuchs and Nymphomaniacs is about how we love today and how increasingly we try to avoid it altogether.
Artsy, swoon-worthy and kinky.

First he steals the oxygen from you, then he spits it back in your face. One of the most interesting and controversial encounters I've made through a book.
Lorenzo DeRita, Editor of COLORS Rome
A funny, unique and oftentimes poetic voice. The sections about St LaCroix are particularly amusing.

Women seem to be very fond of this book, about a down-and-out guy who has lots of trouble with women. It's a surprise dark-horse Williamsburg bestseller.
Jonas Kyle, Spoonbill & Sugartown, Williamsburg
Terrific and genuinely spooky.
