Sod the Bitches!

(2015)
A novel by

 
Surely publishing the novel will expose Berkoff to everyone, critics and all?

'Oh yes, once it's out there, let them all read it. It's just a little foible of mine because I wanted to write a rude book. So I thought, why not write something, have no fear? Just be free. It doesn't matter if people loathe you or hate you or find you disgusting; it doesn't matter.' --Evening Standard

John is an actor and a man who wants, who needs ... and who takes. But those he takes from always expect him to give. To give them love, loyalty, affection - to give them his very soul. Why can't they just let him live as he wants to live? Why can't they understand the desires and passions that drive him? Why is he a man alone?

John has crossed the line from performance to reality, from stage to street - and he needs to wrest back control before all is lost.

Challenging themes that haunt the Berkoff canon are ever-present in this startling novel: his luxurious verbosity; his counterpoint of crude street patter and elegiac proclamation; sex wars; class wars; dislocation and abandonment of love in a thankless and unyielding world. This is a powerful, divisive and brutally honest novel that will inspire, enrage and provoke - and live on long after the final word.
