Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Corporate Porn, NYC author David Grant's third novel, is an alcohol- and sandwhich-fueled romp through the darker side of corporate America and the lighter side of the adult film industry. Grant's voice displays a brilliant wit interspersed with moments of vicious social commentary as he leads us from the hopeless cubicles of the business world to the Speedo-laden sands of South Beach, along the way introducing us to a cast of disenchanted young men and women (and somewhere in between) who find redemption in an unlikely place--the burgeoning adult film industry of Omaha, Nebraska. Filled with memorable characters and dialogue that cuts to the heart of the first decade of the new century, Corporate Porn is a must-read for anyone who's ever struggled under a project deadline or thought about running away to Paris to shoot cowboy porn.

Format: Hardcover
David S. Grant's Corporate Porn represents a bright new entrant to the unnamed genre of fiction from writers like Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk. This genre could be thought of differentially as black humor, satire, deadpan character study, and a dash of existentialism. Though no one has yet to put a name on it, Grant is throwing his lot in with the vibe of some of the very best 21st century American fiction.

It does bear some mention that Grant's work, as with the aforementioned and more popular authors, is highly male-centric. This is not important of itself, but in the context of an academic (and increasingly, intellectual) community that is skewed toward women, it is significant. Not to climb a rusty and dull old soapbox, but I cannot imagine a worse intellectual climate than one controlled exclusively by women. Or, if you prefer, any single gender.

That being said, Corporate Porn is very successful at tapping into the same skeptical, sarcastic, and bitterly funny undertone of other stories of its type. The main character, Trevor, melds so completely with the reader that it might as well be the flustered voice of reason inside us all that, having been ignored for so long, has finally begun to crack under the pressure of insane "real life".

Grant uses old-hat narrative tricks like recurrent phrases and deadpan dialogue delivery to maximum effect. The fact that he did not invent this narrative style does nothing to detract from how effective it is. The narrative is highly visual, even tactile. There is something appropriate about a story that feels like you're slamming your head against a cheap pressboard doorjamb (in a good way, of course, since that's what Trevor's doing).

I was excited when I downloaded this book, thinking it would provide what the blurb promised. And perhaps it does, if you can manage to wade through the excess of bad writing, poor plotting, and tedious narrative. I find it very difficult to believe a hardcover copy, listed at $15.66, would ever exist if not for print-on-demand. I really wanted it to be better.
