-- What really goes on in a strip club? While the setting remains a popular staple in crime stories, "gentlemen's clubs" have their own unique culture and code of behavior: violate it at your own risk.
"Strip clubs cater to the male fantasy," says author Isaac Ho. "They are fine establishments to visit but an utter catastrophe if you let them become your reality. If everything you know about strip clubs comes from watching reruns of Law & Order, prepare to hold on with both hands."
"I wanted to draw a contrast between this mythical sexual underworld portrayed on TV with an uncompromising portrait of the denizens behind the delusion." Ho continued.
Combining Ho's uniquely deviant sense of humor with his meticulous research ethic comes a self-inflicted tale of love, longing and lust in a world where everything that can go wrong will go wrong.
Isaac Ho is the author of the fast paced, science fiction thriller The Repatriation of Henry Chin, a unique post-apocalyptic vision of China’s dark influence on the United States.
Isaac is also the author of Death in Chinatown, a gritty crime drama about an erupting gang war in San Francisco.
An award winning screenwriter and playwright, Isaac’s produced works include the indie film “1,001 Ways to Enjoy the Missionary Position,” an Orwellian sci-fi drama starring Amanda Plummer. His meditative stage play “Along for the Ride” received the SF Weekly Black Box Award for Best Play. Isaac holds an MFA from UCLA in Screenwriting.
