#8. Killing Johnny Fry: A Sexistential Novel By Walter Mosley (Bloomsbury, 2008)
Known primarily for his crime novels, Walter Mosley ventured into what he calls “sexistentialism” with this highly erotic book. A thinking person’s exploration of the deeper recesses of sexuality, Killing Johnny Fry is written in the first person, from a male perspective. This gives you, the female reader, insight into a world of male fantasy to which femmes are not usually privy. While the story contains some of the most explicit sex scenes written by an established American author since Henry Miller and Philip Roth, it is also a legitimately good story. Not for the modest or easily shocked, this book explores the thin line between the ordinary and proclivities less traveled and will pretty much turn on any guy who sees it on your nightstand.
