WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Popular independent bookstore Book Soup, a Los Angeles institution for more than three decades, begins selling Vivid-Alt movies today at its Sunset Strip location.

This deal marks the first time the store has sold adult DVDs.

"We've been following the career of Eon McKai, the founder of the alt porn movement, and feel that he's done some exceptional work at Vivid-Alt,” said Robert Tyson Cornell, director of marketing and publicity for the retailer. “We believe that our customers will want to discover his edgy approach to the genre.”

McKai’s latest movie is “Content,” a statement on the country’s recession. Other Vivid-Alt titles include Winkytiki’s “Man’s Ruin” and “Bad Luck Betties,” Kimberly Kane’s “Live In My Secrets,” and McKai’s “On My Dirty Knees” and “The Doll Underground.”

The Los Angeles Times calls Book Soup a “Sunset Boulevard landmark known for its tall, teetering stacks and mazes of shelves crammed with titles that attracted entertainment and tourist industry clientele.”

"We are thrilled about being in Book Soup," McKai said. "It's much more than a store, it's an artistic center for the community and it's both loved and respected."
