Type: Books
Jack Ketchum's "Broken On The Wheel of Sex: The Jerzy Livingston Years" is the most complete edition of the "Stroup" stories ever collected together. Each story also features an afterword by the author. These stories, written from 1976 to 1981, and appearing in various men's magazines and other outlets, offer Ketchum readers a look into this author's formulative years. Ketchum takes us from the hardcore times of the ‘70’s and early 80’s when free sex, love, and everything related in between was a dream living on borrowed time. But after reading Ketchum’s stories, what a dream it was. A total of nineteen stories appear here, some published for the first time or virtually impossible to find at all can now be found in Broken On The Wheel of Sex: The Jerzy Livingston Years.

Collected here is his character simply known as the Stroup, as well as stories written under the pseudonym Jerzy Livingston, which are rare and difficult to locate almost thirty years after the original publications gave them life.

"I've called these the Jerzy Livingston years because over half of them were written under that name and the rest under my real one. Somehow Jerzy seems more appropriate for this collection. My adoption of that particular pseudonym was both a joke a play on words and a nod to a very good writer, which I hoped some day to be" --Jack Ketchum, from the author's introduction.
