“50 Shades of Grey for the 30-something male.”
The Average American Marriage, the long-awaited sequel to Chad Kultgen’s much debated, always controversial The Average American Male, is a matter-of-fact foray into the male mind and sexual fantasy.
Now married with children, Kultgen's lewd and sex-obsessed narrator once again offers up his deep (and not so deep) thoughts on love, marriage, kids, and (naturally) sex: from birthday sex to interns to parenting, The Average American Male looks upon the institution of marriage with the same deadpan smirk he has brought to the rest of his sex-addled, perennially disaffected life.
Chad Kultgen graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts. His novels include The Average American Male; The Lie; Men, Women & Children; The Average American Marriage, which is the basis for the Jason Reitman film of the same name; and the graphic novel Darklight. He lives in California.
