Hailed upon its publication as a masterpiece of breathless erotica, THE ROPE ABOVE, THE BED BELOW follows a charismatic blonde stripper, as he tries to escape a serial killer whose murdering golden-haired go-go boys like himself. Jason Fury was praised for his vivid evocation of a sex-mad Manhattan that he describes in detail--the movie houses, the live sex shows, the strip joints, the baths. Based on a real series of gay murders in the late 1970s, the author also evokes a vast city before the AIDS epidemic struck in 1985 and THE ROPE ABOVE, THE BED BELOW has been described a parable of what happens when dark reality happens.
