Peter Sotos, the writer who 'rapes a blank page', whose pen is the verbal knife of a sadist', unleashes his latest controversial dispatch from the cutting edge of pornography, sexual abuse and degradation: Drawing from his own experiences, insights and investigations, Sotos slices open the dark underbelly of the sex industry and reveals the harsh, gritty and brutal extremes that lurk within. From prostitution, pornography and drug abuse to the most notorious sex crimes, Soto's obsession with the darkest side of humanity is relentless and uncompromising.Intersected throughout with newspaper extracts reporting on and responding to sex crimes and related subjects (such as Myra, Marcus Harvey's controversial portrait at the recent 'Sensation' exhibition in London), Lazy not only presents an unsanitised account of pornographic excess and extreme sex, but through its frank delivery, it questions society's own, often hypocritical, fascination with these taboo subjects.
Peter Sotos is now regarded as the most important modern writer on pornography. The author of Index (translated into French), and Tick (both Creation Books), Pure, Special and Total Abuse, he is also a member of Whitehouse the notorious 'industrial noise' band. He lives in Chicago, US.
