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of ill fame) to his erotic and darkly imaginative later pieces, this stunning collection also features his previously unpublished experiences with luminary legends such as Tennessee Williams, Allen Ginsberg, Yoko Ono, Edmund White and Quentin Crisp.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.
