By Nick Tosches
A uncooked and blazing novel by means of "the unmarried, so much brain-searingly risky guy of letters. learn him at your peril." (Anthony Bourdain)
An getting older New Yorker, a author named Nick, feels existence ebbing out of him. the area has long gone to hell and Nick is so ailing of all of it that he can't also have a glass of champagne. Then one evening he meets a tantalizing younger lady who has the same opinion again to his condo. Their stumble upon is the main surprisingly outstanding of his existence. Propelled via uncontrollable, primordial wants, he enters a brand new and unimagined measurement of the forbidden and is full of a sexual and religious ecstasy that's as extreme because it is unholy.
Suddenly Nick's senses are alive. He feels powerful, unconquerable, past all inhibition and earthly morality. He indulges in life's pleasures, natural and perverse, elegant and unsafe, from the fragile flavors of the best tomato to the fleshy fantastic thing about a woman's thigh. yet Nick's wish to maintain his rapture leads him to a insanity and a darkness a ways better and dreadful than have ever ridden the demon mares of night.
Writing in a lineage that comes with Dante, William S. Burroughs, Charles Bukowski, Hubert Selby, Jr., and Hunter S. Thompson, Nick Tosches can be America's final genuine literary outlaw-a fearless, uncensorable seeker of our inner most mystery truths and needs, from the basest to the main appealing. Me and the Devil is outrageous, nerve-racking, and superb, a uncooked and blazing novel really in contrast to the other. just like the guy acknowledged: learn him at your peril.
