There are those who say God writes books, and would ban other books. There are those who say any sex is pornography, and letting characters enjoy it is inciting immorality. There are those who say it is subversive to create characters who promote breaking the law or violating taboos. By the book-burners' standards, SEDUCTIONS might be the sort of book they burn authors to ban. If forbidden words might offend you, forbidden acts might shock or disgust you, forbidden viewpoints might tempt you, or frighten you, perhaps it should be prudent to suggest this book is not for you.
This novel is about sex, drugs, and religion, taken as the great addictions of that most seductive decade, the 1970's. Those who judge books to be obscene, subversive, or blasphemous might find all they need to do so in these pages, though it is a serious work about a young couple struggling to understand and adapt to a very turbulent time. Set in the wine country of northern California, and rated X, and Y, and Z, it explores the darker side of the middle-class counter-culture during a decade of self-exploration.
It is about the baby-boomers, Vietnam vets, the first 'gap' generation, and the myths and illusions of the World War II years. It is about life in the middle-class underground,
and a generation who went looking for the truth, in places their parents said should not even exist, places where only the wicked or the very foolish ever go. It is about speaking the unspeakable. Based on quite an amazing body of personal experience, this is a turbulent romp through the world of the middle class counter-culture in a small California college town. Jon and Rigel struggle to keep a life together while trying to either live with or free themselves from the illusions and conventions of their familiesí conservative ways. From psychedelic sex to the family they called a cult, you will find something new, exciting, and challenging on every page.
Here is an excerpt from SEDUCTIONS, a chapter about sex and psychedelics, about which reviewer Gary Carey said, "It's as good as anything by Kerouac or Burroughs." To see if you agree, click HERE.
