John Marr is surprised he doesn’t have AIDS.

During the day Marr works on his graduate thesis—an analysis of the work of a brilliant 1970s philosopher who died mysteriously in a bar in Hell’s Kitchen. As his research and his sex life begin to converge, Marr senses that if AIDS doesn’t get him, something darker will.

The Mad Man, which the author dubbed a “pornotopic fantasy,” is more than a powerful work of philosophical erotica; it is a snapshot of a vanished moment in New York City’s history, when fear and lust commingled in a single powerful force.
