Director Statement

Erotomania, based on my novel Erotomania: A Romance, is an adult animation about two serial monogamists addicted to sex and each other. James Moran and Monica Cole are animal-like creatures who meet over anonymous sex. Eventually food, art, television, and even the therapy that is supposed to help them all become compulsions. As they develop an awareness of each other and evolve, they're forced to confront their traumas and addictions.

The New Yorker and New York Times' Daphne Merkin writes: “ unlike anything I've ever read. It offers a hermeneutics of the erotic, by turns shameless, funny, romantic and poignant.”

Since publication, Erotomania has been reviewed favorably in the Village Voice, Los Angeles Times, and Nerve. It has gained a loyal fanbase in the LGBT community, having been voted a Queerty Top Ten Book.
