This is a dark, twisted tale that centers on a middle-aged screenwriter's obsessive affair with a young, rollerblading bit player in a movie. Set in Paris where the protagonist is shooting a bizarre vampire movie, the labyrinthine plot unfolds amidst a background of subterranean violence and depravity. WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS has commented that John Gilmore's book is "A psycho-sexual crash. A personal crash of one poaching past the limit. You're goinbg to a Valentine's Day party with a .41 caliber Smith & Wesson. What's here, what's crawling out is held in madness and frenzy." Fetish Blonde tests the boundaries of what our culture allows us to accept. Hollywood stewing in Paris--shades of rape and Roman Polanski. The young actress, a punked-out Tinkerbell, should get an award for the most intense Lolita femme fatale.
