Description

Zak Smith is equally comfortable in the fine art scene, the literary scene -- and filming a scene. A porn scene, that is: Smith's alter ego Zak Sabbath is a renowned alternative porn actor. In this illustrated memoir (graphic in more ways than one), Smith describes his shift from New York's high-end art world to the seedy adult entertainment underbelly of Los Angeles, offering readers an inside understanding of the industry, its players, and its audience. Smith narrates his own foray into pornography and gives his readers a new understanding of the industry, its players, and its audience. Best known for his series of illustrations entitled Pictures Showing What Happens on Each Page of Thomas Pynchon's Novel Gravity's Rainbow, Smith is an artistic and storytelling force that cannot be ignored.
