“Marco Vassi was, without a doubt, the foremost erotic writer of our generation. Praised by Norman Malier, Kate Millett, Saul Bellow, and Gore Vidal, he was not only the penultimate sexual explorer, but a literary craftsman whose own life experiences became the stuff of his fiction—expanded, of course, by a grand imagination and a full sense of the absurd. Tragically, Vassi died from pneumonia after he had contracted AIDS.” (e-reads)
‘The Stoned Apocalypse’ by Marco Vassi was an interesting read. Chapter 1 covers Vassi’s quest for some sort of spiritual/political enlightenment involving Gurgieff, Communism, LSD and of course, sex. Chapter 2 is more tightly focused in scope but not as intriguing as it covers Vassi’s (ill-fated) exploration into Scientology. Each successive chapter explores another attempt at finding whatever it was he was searching for.
