More Description

"Prisoner of X: 20 Years in the Hole at" Hustler "Magazine" is a savagely funny odyssey through the bizarro world of Larry Flynt's cracker-rich X-rated empire.

During his tenure in the "Hustler" trenches, punk-rock dropout Allan MacDonell ascends from entry-level comma-catcher to editorial overlord of the unseemly offerings at Larry Flynt Publications. Here's the inside story of running America's most influential porn domain.

A professional career of evaluating countless skin photos, taking XXX field trips, mastering "fully erect" film criticism and enduring creepy interoffice schemers suddenly launches MacDonell into national politics when Larry Flynt opens his wallet to impact the impeachment proceedings against President William Jefferson Clinton. MacDonell reveals the backside of his prominent role in tricking right-wing Speaker-elect Bob Livingston into resigning from Congress.

"Prisoner of X" is a wildly entertaining memoir about life climbing the bent and fearsome masthead of an infamous magazine, and the bittersweet reward of publicly crossing its hillbilly Caesar.

Aside from being the most prolific writer in the history of Larry Flynt Publications, Allan MacDonell contributed to the archetypal punk magazine "Slash" and the underground anthology "Apocalypse Culture." Freelance pieces have appeared in venues as diverse as "Gambling Times" magazine, MrSkin.com and the "L.A. Weekly." Mr. MacDonell lives in California's Hollywood Hills with two dogs, his wife Theresa, and a clear conscience.
