Book Description

Finalist for the 2012 Wonderland Book Award for Best Novel
Poor Dennis. He's a regular sort of guy who's recently been dealt a shitty hand by life: he lost his job, his wife hates him and wants a divorce, and it turns out she was also cheating on him as well. Now he's living on his brother's couch. Holy fuck, that sucks. Dennis can't imagine things could get much worse, and that's why he jumped at the opportunity to take part in a new reality game show: a "sexcathlon" where the first person to achieve 10 increasingly difficult and perverted sexual challenges wins a million dollars and is crowned King of the Perverts. Dennis doesn't care about the title, he just wants the money, but now he's not sure he can make it to the end. Enduring a golden shower and following through with an Abe Lincoln are hard enough, but he's losing his nerve and fears what act of perversion will come next. He'd like to drop out, but his Russian bear of a cameraman, Mongo, has other plans for him and that million dollar prize, and Dennis has to decide which is worse: winning the King of the Perverts, or losing it.

Editorial Reviews


"Despite being wonderfully dirty and mischievously pornographic, what makes King of the Perverts a must-read is the fact that Lowe created a very likeable character.  ... The result is a character that readers will invariably root for, even when he's raining punches on a woman's kidneys." - Horror Talk

From the Back Cover

"Steve Lowe is depraved! He taught me a few things with this hilarious, dangerous, sexy (?) book... None of which I wanted to learn. Take a ride with the King of the Perverts-just strap your clean thoughts and innocence in a car-seat, and hopefully they'll survive the trip."  - Kevin Shamel, author of Rotten Little Animals, Island of the Super People, and Porn Land (forthcoming).

"Great, hilarious stuff that also raises a lot of questions about money, fame, gender and, more importantly, the Dirty Sanchez." - Andersen Prunty, author of Fuckness and Hi I'm a Social Disease

"I get airsick pretty goddamned easily. But I kept reading while I was on the plane. Even through the turbulence. I started at the Dallas/Forth Worth Airport eating a veggie burger in a TGIFridays and ended whilst descending into Arizona. The unsuspecting woman sitting beside me had no idea. It was awesome. Completely amazing in so many ways. So sick. Oh, so sick." - Caris O'Malley, author of The Egg Said Nothing

5.0 out of 5 stars Disgusting and heartwarming at the same time! June 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are not enough words to describe this book. I bought it in part because I have a slight book nerd crush on the author, and partly for the same reason we all check our own deuces...we expect it to be disgusting and make us retch a little, but you never know when you might see something brag-worthy.
This book starts off with a hilarious description of our King's golden shower initiation. I laughed while simultaneously thinking "ew". Looking back, getting peed on certainly isn't the worst thing that can happen.
The alligator ****house scene is by far the funniest thing I've ever read. Fan-freaking-tastic! I read it twice because I was laughing to the point of tears the first time.
From there, the reader is going to either love it or hate it. Somehow, I managed to love it while dry-heaving and screaming to my husband that he was never going to have sex again.

Steve Lowe continues to fascinate and frighten me. I highly recommend any of his long as you have a sense of humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST book EVER!!! July 13, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just read this is one sitting because I couldn't put it down. It's the absolute funniest book I've read in a long time. SHEER entertainment. So many lines in it had me laughing so hard I had to read them again, since I couldn't believe what I just read. That, and some stuff is so good you just wanna experience it twice. Creative, witty, and over-the-top; it's Lowe's best work yet. Definitely my kind of humor, but that isn't to say it's not for everybody. It's too good of a book not to be.

And it's a GREAT story! It's something out of the ordinary, and it's rare to read anything these days that can still surprise you. It's original and could've only been spewed forth from Steve Lowe's awesome mind. And the comedic timing is perfect! There's some stuff in here that's way funnier than what I could usually come up with. ("The Angry Pirate" move was especially pure comedy gold.) One heck of a book. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible amount of perverted fun July 9, 2012
The hook brings you back. That's what singer/harp player John Popper said in reference to the special something a good song is supposed to have in order to get into your head and make you crave more. In literature, the hook is also crucial. In fact, a book's hook is sometimes the only thing standing between you continuing to read or closing a book while shaking you head in disappointment. Steve Lowe's King of the Perverts has a hook, but it's not a regular one; it's a huge, shiny, and vicious meat hook that could spear through conjoined cows. The reader is immediately thrown (notice I didn't say pulled) into a world where a man is trying to convince a beautiful young lady to release some yellow on him. Welcome to entertainment, Steve Lowe style. Closing the book is not an option any more.

King of the Perverts tells the story of Dennis, a regular guy who's recently gone through a rough patch in his life. His wife has asked him for a divorce, he learns she was cheating on him and he lost his job. With no wife, no money and crashing on his brother's couch, Dennis comes across a call for participants for a new reality show. The prize is a million dollars. He jumps on it, but soon learns what participating entails. The show is a "sexcathlon" where the first person to successfully complete 10 increasingly difficult and perverted challenges gets the money and is crowned King of the Perverts. The first few challenges are somewhat manageable, but Dennis is a good guy and his resolve begins to falter as things turn darker, nastier and infinitely more complicated. Thankfully he gets some help from his mysterious Russian cameraman, Mongo, a man who resembles a bear and whose breath smells like pancake syrup and vodka.

5.0 out of 5 stars A funny read! July 4, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is not everyone's "cup of tea", but it is really funny. It is so over the top with the premise, that you can't take it too serious. I think back to "Natural Born Killers" by Oliver Stone. It was so over the top, and that's what the purpose was. I think Mr. Lowe achieved similar results here. There are acts described in this book that are so far over the top, that you just have to chuckle along with the author.

The only negative thing I can say is that it was too short. Lowe does an amazing job getting us to be on the protagonist's side from the beginning. You get a feel that this "fish out of water" could really fall into a situation like this. I was disappointed when it was over. Although a longer book may have taken away from the story and added filler that did not need to be there.

I bought the Kindle version and felt it was worth the price. Again, this book is not for the kids. Some scenes are so "left of center" sexually that you have to just smile, laugh, and appreciate the work it took for the author to come up with some of these situations.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am pervert, hear me roar! April 9, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I went to work with a copy of "King of the Perverts," by Steve Lowe with the expectation of actually doing my job. Before the story begins, the author's wife, Michele Lowe, gives us a precursory warning to the contents of the "book," which is a good sign in my opinion.
Honestly, I only intended on reading a few pages, but Lowe had me choking on laughter and burning through the pages. Before I knew it, the book was finished and it was time to go to work. Or so I thought.
Instead, I went ahead and picked up another of Steve Lowe's titles "Mio Padre, il Tumore," not because I hate my job, but because I love the writing style. Lowe scoops you up with a handful of simple words and carries you off to his world, however perversely insightful that may be, and brings you back with a face splitting post sex smile that will have your boss thinking you actually enjoy your job.
