Abstract:

"After inheriting 400 novels of pornography written by his father in the 1970s and '80s, critically acclaimed author Chris Offutt sets out to make sense of a complicated father-son relationship in this carefully observed, beautifully written memoir"--NoveList.

Andrew Offutt's writing career began as a strategy to pay for his son's orthodontic needs and peaked during the 1970s when the commercial popularity of the erotic novel reached its height. After his death, his son inherited 400 novels of pornography written by his father. As Chris began to examine his father's manuscripts and memorabilia, he realized he finally had an opportunity to gain insight into the difficult, mercurial, sometimes cruel man he'd loved and feared in equal measure, and set out to make sense of a complicated father-son relationship.
