Description

Full Service is the ultimate guilty pleasure, revealing for the first time the shadow lives of the people who created popular culture, told by the man who was so central to fulfilling their desires.

Scotty Bowers, a dashing young ex-Marine exuding sex appeal, arrived in Hollywood in 1946 and quickly caught the attention of many of the town's stars. Working out of a gas station on Hollywood Boulevard, Bowers soon became the go-to guy for anyone looking for a bespoke sexual partner; no matter how outlandish the tastes, Scotty could find someone for everyone...

In his thirty years 'tricking' and arranging tricks for LA's rich and famous, Bowers went to bed with thousands of people and engineered sexual liaisons of all flavours for countless more.

Review quote

I have known Scotty Bowers for the better part of a century. I'm so pleased that he has finally decided to tell his story to the world. Scotty doesn't lie - the stars sometimes do - and he knows everybody. -- Gore Vidal People get very angry at the idea of these beloved Hollywood icons being revealed to have secrets, but actually all that Scotty's revealing is that these people were real. -- Stephen Fry [Scotty Bowers] made his reputation by sleeping with everyone in Hollywood who wasn't actually Lassie, and now he tells all. -- Anthony Lane * New Yorker * [A] juicy, filthy memoir. * Guardian * [A] lurid, no-detail-too-excruciating account of a sexual Zelig who (if you believe him) trawled an X-rated underworld for over three decades without getting caught. * New York Times * Full Service is a scandal fest, oozing salacious gossip in which Bowers... recalls where who did what to whom and how. * Sunday Telegraph * Scotty Bowers is the most honest person I've known, with the best memory for names and places I've ever seen. If he tells you that something happened to somebody, that's the way it was. -- Bob Benevides - one of the subjects of Full Service * L.A. Weekly *
