Killing Johnny Fry: A Sexistential Novel

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Publishing USA, Dec 2, 2008 - Fiction - 288 pages
8 Reviews
When Cordell Carmel catches his longtime girlfriend with another man, the act that he witnesses seems to dissolve all the boundaries he knows. He wants revenge, but also something more. Killing Johnny Fry is the story of Cordell's dark, funny, soulful, and outrageously explicit sexual odyssey in search of a new way of life. It marks new territory for the bestselling author of Devil in a Blue Dress and countless other books; it will surprise, provoke, inspire, and make you blush. Above all, it is about a man questioning the rules we take for granted-and the powerful and sometimes disturbing connections that occur between people when these rules are removed.
