Additional Information

Millions of men and (no doubt many) women have watched famed black porn queen Debbie Dare—she of the blond wig and blue contacts—“do it” on television and computer screens in every combination of partners and positions imaginable. But after an unexpected and thunderous on-set orgasm catches her unawares, Debbie returns home to find her porn-producer husband dead, electrocuted in their hot tub in the midst of “auditioning” an aspiring young starlet.

Burdened with massive debt—incurred by her husband, and which various L.A. heavies want to collect on—Debbie must find a way to extricate herself from the peculiar subculture of the porn industry and reconcile herself to sacrifices she’s made along the way. In Debbie Doesn’t Do it Anymore, the creator of the Easy Rawlins series has painted a moving portrait of a resilient soul in search of salvation and a cure for grief.

I have always been a Walter Mosley fan. I buy almost all of his books, and I usually love them. That said, I was perplexed by Debbie Doesn't Do It Anymore. On the one hand, the premise was intriguing and the novel was well written with good character development, as usual. However, I still don't understand the significance of Debbie's life changing orgasm in the first few pages of the book (this is not a spoiler), and again I don't understand why Debbie was committed to a certain course of action, then again changed her mind in the last few pages of the book. Also, the book had a disjointed feel to me (maybe it was supposed to given how disjointed Debbie was feeling throughout the book?), which was exacerbated by the numerous characters that were introduced in just about every chapter.

I don't regret reading this book, I just felt like I was missing something by the time I got to the end.
I've heard Walter Mosley talk twice. He was brilliant both times. Funny, ascerbic and passionate about his politics. I was eager to read one of his forty plus novels. I picked Debbie Doesn't Do it Anymore, a standalone, for reasons no more logical than flipping a coin. It is a tough read. Debbie is a porn star. Descriptions of what she does and what is done to her are so graphic I put the book. I'm not a wimp. Or a prude. But I was repelled by the brutality of Debbie's life. I finally finished the book, picking it up at the point where Debbie is done with the industry and struggling to make a new life for herself. She remembers her old life, but the memories, still graphic, are brief and less intrusive. Mosely writes with kindness and compassion for Debbie. He doesn't judge her or her counterparts which says something about The man himself. Read this book if you dare, but be prepared. NExt on my list, one of Moseley's classics.
This was my first Walter Mosley novel and I probably would not have been attracted to this one if it had not been the monthly selection for my book club. Overall, I enjoyed the exposure that it offered. The characters are a little hard to believe and their relationships with partners, friends and family are certainly not traditional, but I do think that the author creates characters who are probably credible for those working in the sexual entertainment industry. I had never given much thought as to what challenges might exists for persons who want to leave the porn industry. Going behind the scenes of this industry offers some very disturbing and unattractive circumstances such as the sexual exploitation and lack of protection of youth; violence against women; corruption through black market porn film making, and the emotional void that some porn actors have in their personal lives. Porn is big business, but not very healthy in any way, as the book clearly reveals!
