LOS ANGELES — Former adult film star Sasha Grey is making her fiction-writing debut with a new erotic novel titled The Juliette Society, according to a Deadline Hollywood report.
Grey, the 2010 winner of XBIZ Crossover Star of the Year, has signed a book deal with Grand Central Publishing in the U.S. and Little, Brown Book Group in the U.K.
The novel is being billed as "'Fight Club' set in a highly sexualized world with an assertive female protagonist," the story said.
Grey remarked, “For the very first time I can create my own world, my own characters, my own story, and express my own vision with publishers who are just as passionate about the subject matter as I am.
"I’m not interested in trying to reinvent the erotic novel, but I look forward to taking it back to its source as a salacious treatment of sex, particularly female sexuality, as something mysterious and sensual. Me sensual? Go figure!”
Since retiring from porn in 2009, Grey has starred in Steven Soderbergh's "The Girlfriend Experience," graced the cover of Playboy, appeared on "Entourage," published a book of photos, starred in an Eminem music video and landed various independent film roles, among other projects.
