In this highly entertaining, informed, and intellectually challenging collection of personal anecdotes, essays, satires, ideologies and musings from his life, author Steve Manning delves anecdotally into the wonderful and often incomprehensible world of the human condition and spirit in all its spellbinding complexity.
PIMPS WHORES AND PATRONS OF VIRTUE invites readers to meander through 35 years of Manning's intellectual exophthalmia - his observations, reflections, projections, correspondence, musings, life experiences, stamp-filled passports, collection of interesting and interestingly boring people, answers to the next question and the next and the next, venting, people and things good, bad, and ugly, and irrelevant facts, factoids, and more.
The anecdotes the author presents paint a kaleidoscope of people, which he categorizes as pimps, whores, and the rarest of the species, patrons of virtue. This book showcases all three categories in their blooming glory and as well as their incomprehensible worst, in stories fueled by humor, inquisition and inspirations, balanced by the reality of life.
