Summary
"Cinecity is the frozen capital of an unnamed utopia - or is it dystopia? - where Lucky Pierre plies his trade, and it is the only world he knows. Part porn star, part clown, part everyman, Lucky has no life outside the films he is in, films created by nine women filmmakers, each with her own creative and sexual proclivities. Through the lenses of his nine muse-directors, Lucky - a.k.a. Wee Willie, Peter Prick, Crazy Leg, Badboy, Pete the Beast - becomes a naive castaway, a submissive slave, a child star in a barnyard frolic, a love-struck suburban hubby, a hologram, a sexual outlaw, a monk, a monkey, a mountain-climber, a dirty cartoon, a sex-pilgrim in virtual reality, and much much more. Coover's irrepressible imagination - or that of his nine filmmakers - is boundless ... and merciless." "But what is destiny in a world where there is no line between reality and the increasingly outrageous fantasy of the director and the camera? Recalling the protagonist of The Truman Show if Georges Bataille had written it, Lucky Pierre is both louche and innocent, a caricature of pornographic conventions and a stand-in for all human efforts to sort out vanity, performance, emotion, and motive from the ecstasy that reveals us to ourselves."--Jacket
