Books by Christopher Zeischegg (aka Danny Wylde)
Former porn star, Christopher Zeischegg (aka Danny Wylde), gathers six years of writing into one definitive collection. A memoir of an adult film career from beginning to end and a life lived after, marked by post-porn dysphoria. Interspersed with select fiction, Zeischegg writes about youthful naivete, sex worker love, pro-porn activism, disenchantment, and violence. Body to Job is the ex-porn star’s third book, and his most comprehensive to date―an explicit work of vulnerability, longing, terror, and life.
Set in Los Angeles and its dying adult film industry, real-life porn star and cam model, Danny Wylde, recounts the end of his career in equal parts fact and fiction. He bears his last months amid the death of a friend, a client’s dangerous fantasy, a secret boyfriend, and a family bent on destroying him. Wylde’s second novel, The Wolves that Live in Skin and Space, moves pornography’s narrative past its decadent history and into the world of disposable, tube-site celebrity, month-to-month living, and dissolving barriers between consumer and consumed.
