The BookViral Review:

Take a deep breath and enter the world of Daniel P’Lopez. An extremely brave, brutally honest and completely riveting memoir that proves near on impossible to put down. Written to neither warm your heart nor shelter you in the comfort of better fortune he takes us with him onto the streets of LA to achieve a remarkable level of intimacy with his readers.

Describing his life in graphic detail P’Lopez writes in acerbic prose with a sharp mind to put human faces on the young men we see selling their bodies, huddled in doorways and sleeping rough as he recounts the struggles and challenges he came to face.

There’s no denying it makes for a sobering read, but as dark as it is at times it’s never the less a journey towards the light that invites the reader to peer beyond the veil of everyday day life and consider an altogether darker path. Often harrowing, bleak and explicit but always emotionally charged, he shares with us the lengths to which he went to survive and the lessons he learnt along the way.

Readers will be affected in different ways but perhaps most poignant is an appreciation that whilst poor mental health, hard luck and bad decisions can quickly lead us to rock bottom there is always a  sliver of light ahead if we care to look for it.

An incredibly revealing read Dark Path will certainly find broad appeal amongst the LGBT community whilst attracting a broader readership for its powerful social commentary.

The Occult -why the fascination with dark fiction?

While the occult is a broad umbrella, hiding its many forms under its silky black folds, it’s concepts have endured through time, enjoying many a resurgence through the ages. The term ‘occultism’, is relatively new, not used in French or English literature, for instance, until the 19th Century, although the term ‘occult sciences’ was commonly used in the 16th Century to describe practices such as astrology, alchemy, mysticism, and natural magic.
