The Corpse Wore Pasties by Jonny Porkpie

[11 December 2009]

By Aaron Sagers

Written by the master of ceremonies of the famous Pinchbottom burlesque troupe - and the unofficially titled Burlesque Mayor of New York City - Porkpie has crafted a twisted, sexy and hilarious tale of murder and mystery. Written in first-person, Porkpie, as a slightly-fictionalized version of himself, is on the case after the show stopper is stopped dead after the show when a prop bottle of poison is replaced by the real deal. Modern with the nourish flare, Corpse strikes the perfect tone for a pulp novel and Porkpie fits in nicely with his Hard Case Crime brethren.
