Advance praise for Sharehouse Confidential
John Blesso is the maestro of his Fire Island orchestra, madly conducting the participants in his hedonistic social experiment. Its an entertaining punch that connects, making it surely the best beach read of summer or, better yet, the television successor to Sex and the City
Sharehouse Confidential: Sex, Drugs, and the Single Life Inside an Epicurean Beach House, an uproarious memoir, recounts the adventures of author John Blesso and two-dozen New York City singles living under the same communal roof.
Desperate for distraction after shelving his seven hundred-page novel, Blesso renovates a seven-bedroom beach house on Fire Island, and serves up full-throttle epicurean living. Blesso and his sharehouse members, friends and strangers alike, madly search for a soul mateor maybe just another Saturday night escapade. He tries to observe rule number one: dont hook up with other house members. But when the late-night jacuzzi sessions start bubbling, leaving only bikini bottoms standing guard, rules are easily broken.
Achingly funny, Sharehouse Confidential charts the battle between body and soul as Blesso strives to make sense of post-9/11 America.
