Hurt people hurt people. Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer’s assistant and, somehow, they met in Bright Lights, Big City. He’s blinded by love. She by ambition.
Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious, and heartrending novel, but above all, a very realistic account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.
Anonymous is the New York Times bestselling author of Diary of an Oxygen Thief.
“Kinky, artsy, and swoon-worthy.” –New York Magazine
“The author does a great job. I loved it!” (Junot Diaz, author of The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao)
“First he steals the oxygen from you, then he spits it right back in your face. One of the most interesting and controversial encounters I’ve made through a book.” (Lorenzo DeRita, editor in chief, COLORS magazine)
“A dark-horse Williamsburg bestseller.” (Jonas Kyle, Spoonbill & Sugartown, Booksellers)
This is an honest, real, account of the legacy of pain, neglect and abuse. What was done to us, what motivates others to harm us, and what we allow them to do. The opening line “I liked hurting girls.” grabbed me and the following pages made my heart pound as I realized that what was done to me in my lifetime was all documented in this diary.
An alcoholic’s account of his misogyny is brutal and hard to take at times but the author makes it easy to read because of his honesty, grace, introspective remorse, all interlaced with humor.
