In the early 1970s, with Deep Throat and The Devil in Miss Jones rewriting film history, John Warren Wells hired on to write the script for a high-quality pornographic movie. Originally published by Dell, Different Strokes includes the remarkable script he delivered, the production diary he kept, an interview with the film's leading lady—and a 2012 afterword that puts it all into uncanny perspective. You'd better read the book; you'll probably never get to see the movie!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ingenious post-modern critique of the porn business 8. August 2012
Von White Room - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
When I was compiling CARNAL KNOWLEDGE, my survey of the 20th century world of sex, DIFFERENT STROKES was one of my texts. Having no idea it was a witty parody of how adult films were made, I accepted it as an even-handed account of such a production, and its multitudinous pleasures and disasters. The inclusion of a long interview with the female star just added to its sense of authenticity.Who was to know that this was an ingenious exercise in literary sleight of hand by one of the masters of the game, Lawrence Block? I'd long admired his Matt Scudder stories and been amused by the adventures of bookselling burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr, but DIFFERENT STROKES completely blind-sided me. Like the skilful conman that he is, Block played on all my expectations to lead me totally astray. What a pleasure to see this rare book back in print - or at least in Kindle. I recommend it unreservedly as an example of the redoubtable Block as his most puckishly deconstructive. Ladies and gentleman, a masterpiece!

Lawrence Block simply can't write a bad book.

You might suspect that erotica written early in Block's career, largely for a per-item paycheck, and discreetly masked by a pseudonym, would be hastily dashed off--how to put this delicately?--trash.

You would be wrong.

DIFFERENT STROKES is pure, old-fashioned fun, packed with the wit, drollery, wry humor, and literary and classical allusions that fans know mark Block's work. If I didn't know that my friend Larry wrote this book, I think I would have guessed it. It sure does sound exactly like him.

There is, for instance, the Devil's disciple Pluto who refills alcoholic drinks (frequently and often) with a snap of his fingers. And the mandatory two young women who spice up the two-girl scenes are named Anna *and* Karenina.

"John Warren Welles" introduces himself to us as a high-browed supporter of the First Amendment, Particularly As It May Pertain To The Free Speech Rights of--gulp--pornographers. But after the Introduction, Welles' lofty persona immediately yields to the playful, enthusiastic voice of a writer-for-hire bent on enjoying his venture into the soft, warm, wet, and throbbing underbelly of the literary scene.

Something of a "twofer," DIFFERENT STROKES gives you an actual movie script for a porn film that was never intended to be made, plus the production and pre- and post-production diary of its pseudonymous author. Not only that, you get a freestanding interview with the female star of the movie. All of it is, of course, pure fiction.

At least, I think that it is.

Written during the heyday of pornography coming out of the closet, when couples flocked to see Linda Lovelace perform "Deep Throat," our friend JWW opines that "A porn movie that does not appeal to the prurient interest must be adjudged a failure. That, after all, is what pornography is for; without it, its d'être has no raison."

So, is DIFFERENT STROKES hot, you ask? Though it has its moments of titillation, I don't suggest buying it for that reason. It is too humorous, too literary, and way, way, way too much fun. Buy it instead for proof of my first assertion: Lawrence Block couldn't write a bad book if his life depended on it.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Dated, but that's part of the fun. 3. August 2013
Von Miss M - Veröffentlicht auf

I remember Lawrence Block as a regular name in the old Alfred Hitchcock mystery anthologies I read growing up. Imagine my surprise when this popped up as a Kindle book - a very different Lawrence Block than I remembered! Apparently he was writing about sex under a pseudonym to pay the bills all this time.

This book contains the screenplay for a never-made 'artsy' porn film - think The Devil and Miss Jones - followed by a fictionalized production diary, interview with the (non-existent) star, and a short note from Block himself at the end.

The screenplay is, honestly, not so good. There's a lot of humor that hasn't held up particularly well, including a flashback with a 'dirty old man' that has gone downright stinky with age. The production diary is quite fun, sometimes intentionally, and sometimes because times have changed so much -- most notably when "Wells" speculates about the porn industry...he's convinced, for example, that there will never be a significant number of women watching erotic films. How times do change!

I love Lawrence Block and wanted to read at least one of his old, diffrent books. This one, is in typical Block fashion is well written but the subject matter, the porn Industry, is not my cup of tea. I liked getting the insite into Block in the old days but think I will stick with his muder mystries.
