Diary of a Sex Addict
Witty, dark and explosively carnal, Diary of a Sex Addict chronicles a gay New Yorker’s month long descent into a circus of anonymous hook-ups as he struggles to erase the pain of a failed romance, and the routine of a soul-numbing day job. Written in prose that is at once poetic and unabashedly lewd, Diary offers a glimpse into a forbidden fringe world of longing and debauchery that ultimately reveals the narrator’s fervent search for something to fill a profound emptiness.
Reviews and Praise
"Hess' Diary of a Sex Addict is relentlessly erotic and divinely written." Richard Labonte, Bookmarks
"If Dennis Cooper and Chuck Palahniuk had a bastard love child, it would look like Scott Hess's Diary of a Sex Addict. It is bareback fiction: raw and dangerous, skin to skin and true.The next morning, we almost regret it. Almost." Bryan Borland, Author of My Life as Adam
"Scott Alexander Hess’s shocking, engrossing debut novel ... is both explicit and poetic. Whether his words and thoughts make you wince or salivate, you will be hard pressed to put the book down." Chris Verleger, Edge Media Network
