Read full description of the books Scary Kisses:As a portrait of this time and this place, Scary Kisses shares a place with Bright Lights, Big City, Slaves of New York, and The Bonfire of the Vanities as a classic portrait of the seductive pull of Manhattan nightlife. The story of centers on a menage á trois that drifts listlessly into a spiral of cynicism and nihilistic gratification via sex and drugs. With a raw, voyeuristic eye for detail, Brad Gooch zooms the reader in to the downtown New York scene and the decadent nightlife of the modeling world. His precise, snapshot prose re-creates a time unlike any other, and characters that flash with a stark, bright realism.
