Boy Culture

A Novel

Matthew Rettenmund

St. Martin's Griffin

In the bold literary tradition of The Story of O comes this tale of X, a wise-cracking, postmodern callboy who cheerfully relates all the juicy details of his commissioned sexual encounters in a series of twenty-three chapter-length confessions.

By turns shocking, touching, and off-the-charts funny, Boy Culture is a decidedly urban, witty, and salacious novel that wonderfully encapsulates both edgy hustling and old-fashioned romance. Countless complications arrrive in the form of a classic love triangle when X finds that he's falling for one of his roomates (while his other roomate, of course, is suddenly smitten by X).
