Generation S.L.U.T: A Brutal feel-up Session with Today's Sex-Crazed Adolescent Populace Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's Friday night. Do you know where your clothes are? A mesmerizing blend of journalism and fiction that recalls the wild styles of Hunter Thompson, Bret Easton Ellis, and Douglas Copeland, Generation S.L.U.T. is a no-holds-barred look at the sexual lives of teens today — who's doing it and why. Reported from the battle zone by a nineteen-year-old who is there, living in the thick of this promiscuous world, and writing about it, experiencing it. No compromises, comparisons, or sweeping statements here, just a revelatory and brutally honest depiction of the current generation's relationship to sex.

Review:

"Beckerman's angry, vulgar, smart voice is both tempered and amplified by an almost philosophical understanding of his situation. I read this and think of Lenny Bruce, and there's little praise higher." Carrie Hill Wilner, Nerve.com

Review:

"Original. Hilarious. Well crafted and outrageous, yet with a moral compass that never quits. Parents will be shocked senseless by what they find here, but for younger readers, Marty Beckerman emerges as?dare I say it?a voice for a new generation." Richard Metzger

Review:

"Marty Beckerman is a tree of hope growing out of his generation's scary, vacant swamp of hormone-drenched self-absorption. No wonder he can't get laid." Neal Pollack

Review:

"Endlessly surprising, totally original, and very powerful. You can lecture teenagers all day long, but if you really want them to make better choices, give them this book. Highly recommended." Joseph Weisberg

Review:

"Good work. You morbid little bastard." Hunter S. Thompson

Synopsis:

A provocative look at today's teens, Generation S.L.U.T. is a frontline report and firsthand account of the sexual lives of teenagers by one of their own.

Synopsis:

A revealing, brutally honest look at teenagers and sex follows the lives of a group of high-school students as they negotiate the complex world of modern-day sexuality, in a novel that incorporates frank essays, statistics, and the real-life experiences of teens aged thirteen to nineteen. Original.

Synopsis:

The first exploration of the sex lives of modern teens, as reported from the frontlines by twenty-year-old Marty Beckerman. andlt;BRandgt; Innovatively combining fact and fiction, the book is filled with mind-shattering stats, news reports, and confessions from adolescents nationwide about the new American "Hook-Up Culture," in which 7,700 kids lose their virginity every day. andlt;BRandgt; Far from religious proselytizing, Generation S.L.U.T. seeks to find the balance between sexual freedom and sexual responsibility, and even the most cynical readers (not to mention parents) will find themselves speechless and heartbroken. Blunt and brutal, tackling everything from preteen oral sex to gun violence, sexual assault, and suicide, Beckerman's tour de force through contemporary adolescence will leave you stunned, breathless, and ultimately horrified.
