"Guns, sex & racial suicide. And that's just chapter 1." - Alon Ziv (Author: Breeding Between the Lines)
In his candid and moving memoir, Black Passenger Yellow Cabs: Of Exile and Excess in Japan, Stefhen Bryan 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 moved to Japan in April 2001 for the sole purpose of indulging his addiction.
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 of Japanese culture and customs, in addition to what one reviewer calls “sex research that would make Kinsey proud.”
But more than an account of ribald exploits, sexual addiction and compulsivity, 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. From the dirty streets of a Jamaica that tourists never see to a pastoral Japan, Bryan takes the reader on an eye-opening journey of discovery.
