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.
