Tuesday, April 24
EAST BAY BOOKSELLERS welcomes Christopher Zeischegg (aka Danny Wylde) to discuss his new book, Body to Job, on Tuesday, April 24th at 7pm.
"An addictive, honest and sometimes achingly-heartsick collection, Body to Job explores the ways we remain human in spite of, and because of, our experiences. An odyssey-in-pieces through lust, numbness, love, and, most-fascinatingly, the feeling that comes from 'somewhere just as deep as love, ' we are reminded that a pornstar begins as a person and ends as a person--no matter what the camera tells us." -- Melissa Broder, author of So Sad Today
A memoir of an adult film career from beginning to end and a life lived after, marked by post-porn dysphoria. Interspersed with select fiction, Zeischegg writes about youthful naivete, sex worker love, pro-porn activism, disenchantment, and violence. Body to Job is the ex-porn star's third book, and his most comprehensive to date--an explicit work of vulnerability, longing, terror, and life.
