Private Parts: The Early Works of Ian Ayres



Private Parts: The Early Works of Ian Ayres [Special Extended Version] [Paperback]

Ian Ayres 

Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Bringing together the best poems from Ayres's early verse (much of it written in houses of ill fame) to his erotic and darkly imaginative later pieces, this stunning collection also features his previously unpublished experiences with luminary legends such as Tennessee Williams, Allen Ginsberg, Yoko Ono, Edmund White and Quentin Crisp. More than a book, PRIVATE PARTS is an experience of teen angst, hangovers for breakfast and raw enlightenment tripping over that cliff's edge in the rye. It would not exist if Ayres were not a survivor. Ayres's crusty accounts of a boy's life on the wild side explores the extreme boundaries of human behavior and amorality, offering a journey through his life from his early years in houses of ill repute to his life in Paris today.

Five Star Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Private Parts: The Early Works of Ian Ayres July 5, 2012
Format:Paperback
When I first started reading this book I was immediately immersed in it in a way I did not expect at all. From the early days in brothels, to the struggle to gain the approval of family, find love, and hopeful discover the path to stardom Ian Ayres writes a book with soul. Brutally honest, and very well written with the retelling of his rough early years mixed with poems that speak volumes this book leaves you wanting to read more about the man behind the words. It is without a doubt one of the most interesting books in print today.
