"Guns, sex and racial suicide. And that's just chapter one."
Jamaican-born author Stefhen Bryan details his explicit saga exploring contemporary Japanese social customs and cultural mores.
In his candid and moving memoir, "Black Passenger, Yellow Cabs: Of Exile and Excess in Japan," he conveys an incredible journey from a childhood of third-world poverty to an adulthood of sexual addiction in the Land of the Rising Sun. A self-acknowledged sex addict with a predilection for East and Southeast Asian women, Bryan ventured to Japan in April 2001 for the sole purpose of indulging his obsession.
His riveting narrative is earning high praise for melding lyrical eroticism with insightful explorations into the societal and cultural mores of contemporary Japan. Bryan includes detailed historical and statistical analysis, in addition to what one reviewer calls "sex research that would make Kinsey proud."
But more than an account of ribald exploits, "Black Passenger, Yellow Cabs," delves into the psychological origins of Bryan's addiction, his struggles with depression and suicidal ideations and his ultimate triumph over a compulsion that controlled his life for almost four decades.
Interracial relationships, promiscuity and patriarchy are among the many topics Bryan discusses with candor and humor.'To learn more about "Black Passenger, Yellow Cabs: Of Exile and Excess in Japan," visit the author's website at http://www.blackpassenger.com.
