Dive into the kaleidoscopic streets of 1990s Las Vegas with "Surviving GenX." Amidst the flickering neon lights and the haunting echoes of slot machines, we follow an unnamed protagonist and a battered housewife, both seeking an escape from their tormented pasts. As they wade through the city's seedy underbelly, they find an unexpected refuge in one another—a bond forged in the fires of a metropolis hell-bent on their ruin.
This semi-autobiographical tale is a candid snapshot of life as lived, and seen by the author, including the raw, gritty, and sometimes taboo aspects of human sexuality. It does so without apology.
As you delve into these pages, you'll encounter a blend of wry humor and heartfelt introspection. But be warned: some scenes touch upon kinks, bondage, dominance, and submission. They reflect moments, experiences, and emotions that were very real for many during that time. They include language and situations that might not be culturally acceptable in the current year or location. They leave nothing as untouchable. Religion, sexuality, fidelity, and the advent of political correctness are examined and recorded as they were.
It's OK to be offended. It’s OK to be outraged. It’s OK to cry, to laugh, and to love. Books can bring you to a place you’ve never been or have you re-live events you thought best forgotten. This book is more than just a story; it's a piece of history, an intimate look into personal battles and connections. So, I ask you to approach it with an open heart but also with an awareness of its mature and potentially triggering content.
