Jeremy Silman's First Novel

IM Silman

My novel, AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A GOAT (the paper and ebook versions), is now available on Amazon. Please keep in mind that this is for ADULTS ONLY (heavy drug use, sexual situations, and rampant insanity)!

I feel it hits on many levels. At times it’s very funny, at other times it’s extremely perverse, and at other times its thoughtful/sexual/sad/philosophic/manic, and it leaps to mindsets and places that won’t be familiar (or in many cases, acceptable) to many readers.


Science fiction writer Vance Aandahl had this to say:

“A Goat is born!  From the feverish womb of Jeremy Silman’s imagination, the Goat comes bursting forth on a flood of blood, mucus, afterbirth, and psychedelic effluvia!  Rejoice!  Then run for your lives!”


The book’s description:


When Eli Rubinstein marries a German woman (nicknamed Beast) who may or may not be homosexual and may or may not be Hitler youth, it’s not surprising that things go horribly wrong. In an effort to get rid of this nightmarish female, Eli finds himself fighting for survival in the slums of London, handing out payoffs to crooked cops in Chicago, and finally ending up in the gay-friendly climes of San Francisco during the waning days of the Haight Ashbury drug and free love movement.

Though this dark, perverse, funny, erotic, and somewhat insane story is ultimately about Eli’s battle for freedom, disparate tales about Crowley Magick, the professional world of chess and backgammon, a vampire attack in San Francisco’s golden gate park, UFOs in the Oregon woods, and the wise lessons of a Haight Ashbury holy man paint a picture of a colorful time, not so long ago, that no longer exists.
