Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Provocateur and interrogator of American cultural forms, Wayne Koestenbaum's latest collection, BEST-SELLING JEWISH PORN FILMS, showcases his characteristic urbane melancholia and ribald wit at its very best. "These latest poems reach swoony, unforeseen heights of mental raucousness and worshipful style"--Dennis Cooper. "With a nod to Woody Allen's story 'The Whore of Mensa' Koestenbaum proffers that largest of sex organs--the mind--and entices with erudite and smuttily trenchant wit. Charming, teasing, brainy and slightly Seder-Masochistic, this collection asks that age-old question, 'Is Crisco Kosher?' The answer might surprise you"--D. A. Powell.
