The king of intergenerational porn. --Kevin Killian
Natty Soltesz chronicles the sexual tensions and suppressed yearnings that smolder just beneath the surface in small town blue-collar America. Writing like the Stephen King of mansex, Soltesz perfectly captures the details and the moments that a certain breed of men young and old alike experience on their journey along the path to erotic transcendence. --Joe Gage
About the Author
Michael Kirwan was born in NYC late 1953. Kirwan began drawing around age 4-5 to create an imaginarily tolerable universal to escape the reality of his home life. Raised Catholic (but insultingly not molested), he survived his youthful adventures and soon found himself working at the St. Marks Bathhouse in the Village. He had his drawings published first in Stroke magazine 1985. Through the years, he has produced hundreds of illustrations and comics for adult magazines and displayed his work around the world, but he resides in Los Angeles. He earns a meager living selling original artwork to enlightened collectors and producing commission artwork for those who d like their personal fantasies captured on paper. Bruno Gmunder Verlag released a collection of Kirwan s illustrations, Just So Horny, in 2011.
More About the Author
I've had stories published in magazines (including Freshmen, Mandate and Handjobs), anthologies (including Best Gay Erotica and Best Gay Romance) and I even co-wrote a porn film with legendary director Joe Gage.
Also for the last six years I've published free stories on my website (slightly NSFW): http://nattysoltesz.com

With stories about teenagers who explore their sexual tensions with one another to adults who question choices they've made in their own lives, Backwoods not only presents delicious titillating passages readers come to expect from a work of erotica, but Soltesz throws in the gamut of human emotion that serves to heighten the passion and yearning behind each sexual encounter. Romance, raunchiness, tender and thought-provoking, Backwoods is one of those books bound to resonate on some level with every reader, long after the last page is turned.
I must say that although Backwoods is the effort of a maturing writer, I only gave it four stars whereas I gave his previous book five. While Backwoods is the better book of the two, as a result of Soltesz finely honing his craft, I didn't get to know a couple of the characters as well as I would have liked. The sexually free Jim Cunkleman, the budding sexuality of Sess Roberts and his new friend, Ron, the biker as well as the pervy Mr. Weist are all worthy of further exposition. I'd love to see them appear again in another book.
But I am by no means disappointed in this work. In fact, I own both a physical and Kindle copy of this book.
When Soltesz set out to produce this book, he turned to a community of interested readers and asked for sponsorships so he could commission several pieces of art to accompany the book. The caricatures offered by artist Michael Kirwan underscore the steamy underbelly of indecent secrets that abound in Groom, Pa.Read more ›
All in all I'm quite happy with my purchase. The only thing I would have wished for was more about the Frye men. Hopefully Groom will be revisited in a future book and we can see them revisited there.
