The Handsome Twist
by Pezhmun Dennis Ghiassi

The Handsome Twist is a dark fiction fairytale inspired by the very true events in the author’s life, being raised in Iran as a LGBTQ+ male, which for many who don’t know is equivalent to a punitive fatality in this country. Due to tackling topics such as perverse behavior, taboo lust, political oppression, prostitution, maltreatment, rape and homicide, written in high volume of vulgar language, this book is aimed to target the more mature audience of the LGBTQ+ crowd. Cursed by The first royal subject of Hell, Queen of Lust, The king of Love is destined to live a life of trauma and tragedy. In a rude awakening he is Stripped from his chakras of vision, voice, and heart as they take human form helping him to understand the true meaning of love through the courage of self-acceptance. Ultimately, he meets his soulmate, but hopefully in time to save the world from plunging into eternal darkness! The ultimate message of this book is to inspire ALL THE COLORS OF THE RAINBOW to gash through the clouds of darkness surrounding their lives, and allow themselves to shine like the lights they are with the healing power of Love!
