Inhaltsangabe: Set in 1970 -- the last, dark days of hippiedom, when everyone was high -- Perv is the story of Bobby Stark, a sixteen-year-old bundle of angst and hormones who loses his virginity in a drug-addled tryst with a one-armed barber's daughter. His best friend, Tennie Toad, rats him out, and Bobby gets kicked out of prep school and shipped to Pittsburgh to live with his mom, a sozzled electroshock aficionado who still can't get over the insult of Bobby's father's suicide-by-streetcar. After myriad weird encounters with his mother's "dates," Bobby flees the horrors of Mom's condo and hooks up with Michelle, the girl of his dreams, a lapsed Hare Krishna-ette he's known since kindergarten. The couple decides, in the spirit of the times, to hitch to San Francisco. But before they make mile one, they're picked up by a pair of Bad Hippies -- Meat and Varnish -- spiritual cousins to Charles Manson. The adventure gets harrowing, as the duo narrowly escape rape, vanquish their assailants, and stagger from Meat's hell-fueled Lincoln Continental transformed, traumatized, and ready, of all things, to fall in love.

Inhaltsangabe:

Set in 1970, in the last, dark days of hippiedom, Perv -- A Love Story is the saga of Bobby Stark, a sixteen-year-old batch of desire and angst struggling to stay sane in a world gone Day-Glo.

As the novel opens, Bobby loses his virginity in a drug-addled tryst with a one-armed barber's daughter.  For his sins he's thrown out of school and dispatched to live with his mom, a festive electro shock aficionado, whose condo he flees to track down Michelle, the gorgeously damaged, lasped Hare Krishna-ette he's adored since kindergarten.

Like the rest of their generation, the couple hit the road for California, only to be picked up in a hell-fueled Lincoln by a pair of Bad Hippies -- Meat and Varnish -- smacked-out spiritual cousins to Charles Manson.  From here the trip gets vicious....

Already an underground classic, Perv-A Love Story is relentlessly twisted, sexy, and savagely funny literary excursion, a novel of doomed youth in the era when Flower Power had begun to wilt.
