It is a weird campy bizarro pulp tale of cosmetic surgery, porn, and revolution. Viola Chalfont (follow her on Twitter @Viola_Chalfont) is an omnisexual pantheist with a hypertrophic psychic clitoris. When she comes to L.A. in search of her next adventure, she falls in with a porn auteur with a wizard living in his nose. At the insistence of her director she goes under the knife of Dr. Fernando Schwartz, a drug-addled but preternaturally gifted plastic surgeon who transforms her into "a fuckable female version of Che Guevara," the better for her to star in the parody porn epic Shaved Guevara.
Seeing the face of a revolutionary in the mirror day after day, starts to take its toll on Viola who soon finds herself morphing into a true revolutionary. When shooting wraps on Shaved Guevara and she no longer has an outlet for her insurgent impulse, Viola starts raising a real life army hellbent on bringing sex workers out of the shadows and removing the yoke of hypocritical oppression.
Needless to say, it a strange tale. Raucous and weird. Funny, surreal, and perverse it is one hell of a ride. A paperback edition should be available later this month, and I will keep you posted on that as it develops.
