Description

Grant Stoddard left Britain for the States with the clothes on his back, a fascination with all things American, and a burning hope for something bigger. But with no steady job, no money, and no girlfriend, the starry-eyed young Englishman's excitement was shrinking fast. Then fate in the guise of an X-rated online contest intervened. Winning first prize -- sexual intercourse with an infamous married sex columnist -- changed everything. With a shot of much needed confidence, the sensitive lad emerged as the mascot of Nerve.com, a gonzo sex columnist who would begrudgingly try any and every lurid thing his co-workers devised. From offering himself up as man-bait at a notoriously hard-core gay bar to attending an elite orgy with a blue-blooded date, Stoddard went where few men dare and lived to tell the tale. With a self-deprecating style and wonderful appreciation of the absurd, Working Stiff is a unique coming-of-age story from a very funny and irreverent new writer.show more

Review quote

"Stoddard's prose manages to be clever, poignant, x-rated, and hilarious -- often in the same sentence. I blushed through the whole book, but couldn't put it down" * Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada * "A genuine talent... he writes with elegance and precision" * LA Times *show more
