Also, in 1996, The Bad Press released a collection of his poetry, If Language at the Same Time Shapes and Distorts Our Ideas and Emotions, How Do We Communicate Love?.[1] This was followed by two novels, Boundaries, and Wasted, and then an a best selling autobiographical account of an eight-year period named My Undoing (Love in the Thick of Pornography, prostitution, Sex and Love).
