2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Sometimes I think about it, Stephen Elliott gathers personal essays, reportage, and profiles written over fifteen years to tell a powerful story about outsiders and underdogs. Moving from the self to the civic, Elliott describes a childhood characterized by violence and homelessness, and his growing interest in cross-dressing and masochism, before stepping out into the broader world. The essays that follow range from a family devastated by a rock slide in Southern California to a young man caught in the prison-industrial complex, from pop music to pornography to publishing. With great sympathy, Elliott tells the compelling stories of those who are broken and seek to be whole."--Back cover

My Girlfriend Comes to the City and Beats Me Up follows the narrator on a dizzying ride through past and present, from a group home for troubled adolescents in Chicago where he loses his virginity to shooting galleries and homeless encampments in San Francisco where he searches for deeper and dark

Looking forward to it, or, How I learned to stop worrying and love the American electoral process by Stephen Elliott( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Stephen Elliott does not know what to think of American voters, this year's desperate and heated run for presidency, or the legitimacy of the political system. He doesn't know whether to love John Kerry or try to love Howard Dean or try, simply, to get excited about Politics. But what he does know is that most Americans are as confused, taxed and broken-hearted as he is. Looking Forward To It is the chronicle of one ordinary fellow's skeptical -- and hilarious -- journey through the election process. It is on the campaign trail that he will meet washed-out campaign managers, idealistic publicists, corrupt journalists, world-weary auditorium janitors, recovering drug addicts, and, of course, politicians. His report documents a journey into the center of "the thing", our country, where Americans high and low come together to participate in the most profound gesture of democracy: the election
The Adderall diaries : a memoir of moods, masochism, and murder by Stephen Elliott( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In the spring of 2007, a brilliant computer programmer named Hans Reiser stands accused of murdering his estranged wife, Nina. Despite a mountain of circumstantial evidence against him, he proclaims his innocence. The case takes a twist when Nina's former lover, and Hans's former best friend, Sean Sturgeon, confesses to eight unrelated murders that no one has ever heard of. At the time of Sturgeon's confession, Stephen Elliot is paralyzed by writer's block, in the thrall of Adderall dependency, and despondent over the state of his romantic life. But he is fascinated by Sturgeon, whose path he has often crossed in San Francisco's underground S&M scene. What kind of person, he wonders, confesses to a murder he likely did not commit? One answer is, perhaps, a man like Elliott's own father. So begins a journey through a neon landscape of false confessions, self-medication, and torturous sex
