    Description

    From the author of Lost Souls, Drawing Blood, and Wormwood comes a thrilling and chilling novel that best-selling author Peter Straub says serves as a “guidebook to hell”.

    To serial slayer Andrew Compton, murder is an art, the most intimate art. After feigning his own death to escape from prison, Compton makes his way to the United States with the sole ambition of bringing his “art” to new heights. Tortured by his own perverse desires, and drawn to possess and destroy young boys, Compton inadvertently joins forces with Jay Byrne, a dissolute playboy who has pushed his “art” to limits even Compton hadn’t previously imagined. Together, Compton and Byrne set their sights on an exquisite young Vietnamese-American runaway, Tran, whom they deem to be the perfect victim.

    Swiftly moving from the grimy streets of London’s Piccadilly Circus to the decadence of the New Orleans French Quarter, Poppy Z. Brite dissects the landscape of torture and invites us into the mind of a killer. Exquisite Corpse confirms Brite as a writer who defies categorization. It is a novel for those who dare trespass where the sacred and profane become one.

    Twisted AF and fun too

    what a deliciously different type of book to hear from one of my favorite narrators it is raunchy, it is foul, it has erotic bits, it has comedy bits, it has that wonderful soothing dulcet tones of Joshua Saxon and most of all, it is a well thought out intelligent little read of just about 8 hours of listening pleasure!

    the story of two serial killers during the AIDS crisis is quite unique in its lovely twist and turns of words and verbiage.

    i highly recommend this listen to it alone so you can laugh out loud at the naughty bits and the guilty pleasure that you receive from empathizing with the serial killer as so deliciously played and portrayed by the wonderful calming tones of Joshua Saxon!

    Blunt, Bold and Horrific

    Fantastic narrator. Book is intense and keep you needing to know what happens next. Does not shy away from anything. And I mean anything. Not for the faint of heart. In your face horror that is horribly delightful.

    Harrowing, but worth it

    Read this to test your humanity. Read this if you need to weep (or vomit). It's a gutwrenching and utterly disgusting gift in heartbreakingly beautiful wrapping.

    It was alright

    Kind of just alright. (there may be spoilers in this rant). Very gruesome but I like that. Gruesome is half the reason this book interested me. It was EXTREMELY well written. Decent depth of characters but for me it all sort of fell a little short. I had heard so many things about this book and how great it was and maybe I hyped it up too much so it felt underwhelming. I felt like the actual story, the plot and rise and fall of it was a little linear. The book felt like it was 90% explanation of characters and what they had going on and 10% forward moving story. I kind of felt like I was waiting for Jay and Andrew to cross paths for a long time. On that same note we were given a ton of information about Tran and Luke but I had no idea where their storylines were going or why or how it mattered to Jay and Andrew. I got a little bored hearing about Tran and his life for a bit there. The end when they all collided was meh for me. It didn't have my heart pumping the way I thought it would I was just kind of like oh, ok. That being said I adored the way the two killers were written. Two homosexual killers both focused on killing homosexual boys could be dicey as far as sounding redundant but each killer was vastly different from the other and that made it great especially when they came together. Also, the narrator was fantastic, just wonderful. So well read and very engaging.

    Did not disappoint!

    I rarely leave reviews, if ever, and I have been waiting for this book to show up on audible. It was totally worth the wait. Visceral, detailed, tragic. All the things. Worth the credit!

    Extreme horror, thy name is Poppy Z. Brite

    I came into this book not knowing what to expect, only that the author was highly recommended as one of the premier LGBTQIA wordsmiths out there. I have to say that I was not disappointed, and that this will not be the only title I read from Poppy.

    Great book but not for weak stomachs

    This book was beautifully written, yet pretty gruesome. Toward the end, I almost thought about stopping it but I obviously couldn't. I have started buying the hard copies of books I like and this one will definitely get a spot on my shelf! It's like gay meets horror and I very much enjoyed it.
