In this scorching, mournful, often explicit, and moving novel by the famed creator of the Easy Rawlins series, Debbie Dare, a black porn queen, has to come to terms with her sordid life in the adult entertainment industry after her philandering husband dies, electrocuted in a hot tub … with another woman in there with him. Debbie decides she just isn’t going to “do it anymore.” But executing her exit strategy from the porn world is a wrenching and far from simple process.

Millions of men (and undoubtedly many women) have watched famed black porn queen Debbie Dare—she of the blond wig and blue contacts—“do it” every which way with every combination of partners the mind can imagine. But one day an unexpected and thunderous on-set orgasm catches Debbie unawares, and when she returns to the mansion she shares with her husband, insatiable former porn star and “film producer” Theon Pinkney, she discovers that he has died in the hot tub while “auditioning” an aspiring starlet.

Burdened with the massive debts that her husband incurred and which various Los Angeles heavies want to collect on, Debbie must reckon with a life spent in the peculiar subculture of the pornography industry and her estrangement from her family and the child she had to give up. She’s done with porn, but her options for what might come next include the possibility of suicide.

Debbie Doesn’t Do It Anymore is a portrait of a ransacked but resilient soul in search of salvation and a cure for grief.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mosley, as usual, is at the top of his game. Debbie, the ‘queen of porn,’ is a surprisingly sympathetic figure. After the devastating death of her porn-producer husband, readers witness her life spiraling out of control in totally unexpected ways.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “This could be the best thing Mosley has written in years, a deeply affecting story of a woman whose determination to pull herself out of one life and into another is tested almost to its limits by things she can’t control—until she finds a way to control them…[Mosley is] back at the top of his game here”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Narrator Bahni Turpin delivers an entertaining portrayal of Debbie Dare, thirty-one-year-old porn star extraordinaire. This humorous yet sensitive novel features a woman who is learning to cope after the death of her husband, a former porn star. Turpin’s voice is bold and precise. She sounds curt at times but can be glib as well, especially when speaking to those demanding payment for her husband’s debts. Listening to Turpin is like watching a staged performance of Debbie’s unfolding world as she copes with family traumas, attempts to leave the pornography industry, and tries to ward off feelings of suicide. Turpin takes command of the prose, whether Debbie is being intuitive or cerebral about the life she wants to live. She delivers an absolutely engaging narration.”
