Description

The year is 1934, and amiable New York gag writer Artie Plask has taken the West Coast plunge. His first day on staff with a top radio show introduces him to the irresistible Mariel Fenton, a wit among wits who immediately takes an interest in all aspects of Artie's life—especially his private life. As Artie finds his feet in a world of blustering comedians, pansexual sex goddesses, timid screen legends, exhibitionistic scriptwriters, and self-infatuated geniuses, Mariel leads him on a zany journey up and down the pleasure dial—a giddy romp through Hollywood that's chock-full of airwaves showdowns, writing-room counterplots, devious impersonations, naked meetings, and a sensuality-drenched assortment of erotic escapades.


Praise For The Pleasure Dial: An Erotocomedic Novel of Old-Time Radio

“Sex-positive and upbeat ... hurtles along at the unmissable pace of a Buster Keaton car chase .... [Edwards] knows how to tell a story that excites and entertains and his fiction is never less than a must-read.” —Erotica Readers & Writers Association



“This is a clever and very funny book. As usual, I read it in bed; I kept laughing out loud and interrupting my husband to read him another ‘good bit.’ At the same time, the effort Mr. Edwards invested in research is obvious on every page. Nineteen thirties Hollywood really comes alive.” —Beyond Romance
