“A remarkable book. An insane, hallucinatory mosaic of sexual dysfunction, humour, pathos and narrative energy.”

– AL Kennedy

By day, Charlie Bain is the school’s most inspiring teacher. By night, he prowls the stylish bars of Glasgow, seducing women. Fuelled by art, drugs and fantasies of being an indie star, Charlie journeys further into hedonism, unable to see the destruction his desires are leading everyone towards.

‘He has pulled the sheets back on Lothario men and shown them lying there wriggling, pathetic, and bare-bummed…Bissett proves himself to be a fresh, compelling and distinctly Scottish literary talent’

– Scotland on Sunday

One of Scotland’s most dazzling young writing talents tackles the modern phenomenon of sex addiction. Dark, funny and deliciously erotic, Death of a Ladies’ Man is an intense portrait of male vanity, written with verve and emotional rawness. A vital read for anyone who wants to understand why men are d***s.

“F***ed up, funny, and fantastic. ****”

– Lauren Laverne
