The Last Days of August by Jon Ronson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is my second audiobook by Jon Ronson focused on some aspect of the pornography industry and I truly love his style. In The Last Days of August, he digs into the apparent suicide of 23-year-old porn star August Ames. Frankly, this is the only access I plan to have into the business and I’m glad that Ronson and his producer, Lena (not sure of the spelling because it’s an audiobook…) spend months tracking people down and interviewing a good many people in an effort to paint a picture of not only the industry as a business, but the people in front of and behind the camera.
Honestly, I find these stories fascinating and love Ronson as a narrator. I’ll absolutely keep listening to his stuff.
