Description

A tour-de-force from one of the most daring and sensuous young writers in America, Suicide Blonde is the intensely erotic story of a young woman's sexual and psychological odyssey, which Vanity Fair has called "a provocative tour through the dark side." Jesse, a beautiful twenty-nine-year-old, is adrift in San Francisco's demimonde of sexually ambiguous, drug-taking outsiders, desperately trying to sustain a connection with her bisexual boyfriend Bell. She becomes caretaker and confidante to Madame Pig, a grotesque, besotted recluse. Jesse also meets Madison, Pig's daughter or lover or both, who uses others' desires for her own purposes, and who leads Jesse into a world beyond all boundaries. A sensational novel published in nine languages, Suicide Blonde is a startling, knowing expurgation of identity and time, as well as the common, and now tainted, language of sexuality.
