Sod the bitches!

Description
Sod the Bitches! is the challenging, controversial and thrilling new fiction masterpiece from one of the world’s greatest actors and playwrights. John is an actor. He is a man. A man who wants. A man who needs. A man who takes. And he takes from those who always expect him to give. To give them love, loyalty, affection – to give them his soul, his loyalty, his life. Why can’t they just let him thrive? 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, from imagination to visceral breath – and he needs to wrest control before all is lost. Themes that haunt the Berkoff canon are present in this startling novel, from his use of crude street patter to discussion of sex wars; class wars; dislocation and abandonment of love in a thankless and unyielding world. This is a challenging, brutally honest novel that will inspire, enrage and divide – and live on long after the final word. Sod the Bitches! is testament to the power of words. It will shock, amaze, inspire and horrify. This is a book for the brave – a novel to expand your mind and challenge your moral compass and beliefs.
