A novel by Terry Southern. "While the 'X' movies get more Xplicit, audiences wonder what will happen when the wide screen finally does project THE ACT, unexpurgated, uncut, unclothed, close-up... and AESTHETICALLY EROTIC. Terry Southern doesn't wonder - he knows. With the manic certitude of comic genius, he conceives the dream-team to film the consummation. The producer is Sis Krassman, past master at hustling cash for any opus to promise a profit. The director is Boris, king film-maker, whose films are so arty they mystify the masses but are sufficiently spiced with good, solid sex that they rake in both awards and dollars. And the stars: an elite chosen for their staggering variety of sexual tastes and their willingness to give all for ART. With his characteristic, no holds-barred, misanthropic sense of the absurd, Southern plunks his picture-makers down into the pristine countryside of Liechtenstein. Here they will film 'The Faces of Love,' an orgy of sex in all combinations with, of course, exquisitely sensitive synchronization, symbolism, and accent on detail - the ultimate erotic film." -- publisher's statement.
