"Set in the late 1990s, "Shuck" describes with great clarity and verve the last gasp of a gritty Manhattan."-Bruce LaBruce, film director

"Shuck" is the intense, dazzling diary of a male hustler in New York who tries to manage his reputation as the city's porn star du jour when he's not dumpster diving, tweaking, or trying to get published. A remarkable peep show of a novel about what binds artists and prostitutes, and the collateral damage of what happens when they try to recover what they have lost.

Daniel Allen Cox is a former porn star. This is his first novel.

Reviews

"Daniel Allen Cox writes truthfully and elegantly about a New York that I knew very well and that I miss very much. Set in the late 1990s, his novel Shuck describes with great clarity and verve the last gasp of a gritty Manhattan just before the war with the Eskimos, a bygone era that existed before wealth and privilege strangled the sweet life out of street life."--Bruce LaBruce, director of Otto; or, Up with Dead People Daniel Allen Cox writes truthfully and elegantly about a New York that I knew very well and that I miss very much. Set in the late 1990s, his novel Shuck describes with great clarity and verve the last gasp of a gritty Manhattan just before the war with the Eskimos, a bygone era that existed before wealth and privilege strangled the sweet life out of street life. --Bruce LaBruce, director of "Otto; or, Up with Dead People"--Bruce LaBruce"Bruce LaBruce" (07/01/2008) In his novel "Shuck", Daniel Allen Cox gives us Jaeven Marshall, the bastard love-child of Dennis Cooper and Jim Carroll. He's a hustler, self-abuser, wannabe diarist, and aspirant to the dubious title of 'Boy New York'. You'll regret getting to know him, but you'll wish he were in your bed. â Hal Niedzviecki, author of "The Program" and "Hello, I'm Special"--Hal Niedzviecki"Hal Niedzviecki" (06/23/2008)
