Oedipus Wrecked by Kevin Keck

Book Description

FROM THE HILARIOUS TO THE TOUCHING - A POWERFUL STORY CHARTING SEXUAL DISCOVERY If David Sedaris were straight (or Margaret Cho were a man) they might be Kevin Keck. Keck mines the same rich vein of candid, confessional humour as these popular comics, but OEDIPUS WRECKED goes further in single-mindedly and hilariously recounting every grim detail of the author's almost absurdly varied sexual history. Keck pulls no punches in describing his endless, obsessive erotic experiments. In essays like "Ass Backwards", "Wet, Hot Presbyterian Summer" and "I Was a Teenage Homosexual" Keck skewers his eccentric mother, documents his plunge into a sex party and limns a particularly outre encounter with a girl who demands he participate in watersports. For a driven man like Keck, taboos exist to be broken. In OEDIPUS WRECKED, Keck's tableaux of sexual excess are rendered in vivid, unflinching language that marks the emergence of a new voice in contemporary humour that is both cuttingly comic and relentlessly revelatory.
