Slow Death: Sexual Violence and Violent Sex Plus Skinheads Attact the Art World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gang of socially ambitious skinheads runs riot through the London art world, plotting the rebirth and violent demise of an elusive avant-garde art movement. Taking genre fiction for a ride, Slow Death uses obscenity, black humor, and repetition for the sake of ironic deconstruction. The steamy sex is always graphic and all traditional notions of literary taste and death are ditched in favor of a transgressive aesthetic inspired by writers as diverse as Homer, de Sade, Klaus Theweleit, and '70s cult writer Richard Allen.

Synopsis:

In between shagging his doctor and liberating his girlfriend from the SWP, skinhead Johnny Aggro takes on the art establishment. As the poseurs of the art world rush to produce ever more creative piles of crap in the name of art, Johnny revels in the chaos of comic violence and sleazy sex.

Synopsis:

Sexual violence and violent sex plus skinheads attack the art world. A great punk novel.
