Editorial Reviews

Review

"Not a bad way to pass a couple of hours, but be prepared to put it down a few times and wonder to yourself, "What the fuck did I just read? Is that even real?" Trust me. It is. And it's probably best not to Google it to make sure." - Bookshelf Bombshells

"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

"Strange sexual proclivities aside, underneath the donkey punches is a smart, witty satire. ... Thankfully, it's more well-written than any porn could hope to be." - Bibliomantics

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

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 novels...as long as you have a sense of humor.

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.

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.

"Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
you had a busy day today."
--Elton John

As hard as love is, relationships are harder. In today's day and age, it can be hard for a man to express his love in a union, which, more often than not, leads to confusion, arguments, and bickering. No one wants to come home at the end of the day to a loveless, tepid partnership with a complete stranger. Prostitutes are cheaper and less judgmental.

But, as we all know, sex with hookers, good though it may be, leads to low self-esteem and social diseases. What's more, families can suffer from the perceived infidelity that comes with soliciting the services of a lady of the evening. And that's not even mentioning the jail time. In the long run, it seems that the best approach to a happy love life is to approach one's relationship as Bob Villa would- with a power saw and a hammer.

Remember that the small things count. Your spouse will easily be won over by small gifts that show you care. Her favorite chocolate bar, a single flower, and filling up the gas tank in her car are all low-cost, minimal-effort things you can give her to show her you care. Heck, in the case of the chocolate bar, maybe she'll even give you some!

Remind her of all your good times together. Can you pull up obscure details from your wedding day? How about the birthday picnic when it rained? If you can, great. If not, make something up! She'll follow right along to make it look like she didn't forget such a nice memory. The key is to keep it vague. That way you won't have to waste time trying to figure out if it was actually your wife you're remembering!
