Publisher's Summary

An aging New Yorker, a writer named Nick, feels life ebbing out of him. The world has gone to hell and Nick is so sick of it all that he can't even have a glass of champagne. Then one night he meets a tantalizing young woman who agrees to come back to his apartment. Their encounter is the most strangely extraordinary of his life. Propelled by uncontrollable, primordial desires, he enters a new and unimagined dimension of the forbidden and is filled with a sexual and spiritual ecstasy that is as intense as it is unholy.  

Suddenly Nick's senses are alive. He feels strong, unconquerable, beyond all inhibition and earthly morality. He indulges in life's pleasures, pure and perverse, sublime and dangerous, from the delicate flavors of the perfect tomato to the fleshy beauty of a woman's thigh. But Nick's desire to sustain his rapture leads him to a madness and a darkness far greater and dreadful than have ever ridden the demon mares of night. 

Writing in a lineage that includes Dante, William S. Burroughs, Charles Bukowski, Hubert Selby, Jr., and Hunter S. Thompson, Nick Tosches may be America's last real literary outlaw - a fearless, uncensorable seeker of our deepest secret truths and desires, from the basest to the most beautiful. Me and the Devil is outrageous, disturbing, and brilliant, a raw and blazing novel truly unlike any other. Like the man said: Read him at your peril. 

"A raw and blazing novel by "the single, most brain-searingly dangerous man of letters. Read him at your peril." (Anthony Bourdain)

Critic Reviews

"Splendid, passionate....A strange, wild hybrid of a novel...with a moral fervor far exceeding most novels of better grooming." (Will Blythe, New York Times Book Review)

"A novel that happily breaks every rule it can....The sheer audaciousness of Tosches's writing makes most other fiction seem phony by comparison." (David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle

"It's more than a book. It's a living thing. Unbelievable. I read everything by Nick Tosches....A modern masterpiece. Utterly superior to almost everything published within the last 50 years. I won't bother trying to describe it. Just go get it." (Johnny Depp)

Brilliantly bizarre

A surreal story composed of uncompromising insights and fantastic madness; at once disconcerting and gripping.

13 Hours of my life I will never get back.

If you enjoy listening to the dry drunk ramblings of an old man, then you will like this book. I'm sure the author thinks he is being philosophical but it is painfully boring and tedious. Do not waste your time.
