The Savage Place

Attending Madrid bullfights in Franco’s Spain and the Festival Los Fallas in Valencia and any other event he can capture and sell as a freelance photographer, Andrew Williams travels around Europe working at his profession. He is also driven to escape the sexual dysfunction he suffers whose root cause is his relationship, back in New York, with his beautiful sister Dominique to whom he must eventually return. Flight from his problem is no solution as various bedroom adventures proves. Only until he senses at last the cause of his problem can he successfully grapple and conquer it.

-N.Y. Herald Tribune Book Review 

“Unusual subject mater handled with skill, delicacy, sensitiveness and understanding.”  

-John Barkham, Saturday Review Syndicate 

“An off-beat work of a writer of obvious talents…alternatively sympathetic and rough…morbidly fascinating.” 

–Cleveland Press
