Dawn Schiller’s Book Singing Starts Today

New Book Covers Her Life with John Holmes

Dawn Schiller’s Los Angeles book signing appearances for her
new book “The Road Through Wonderland: Surviving John Holmes” are this
week, August 26 – 28.

“Porn, drugs, mass murder” the story of adult film star John
Holmes has been told before, but not like this “Schiller’s unflinching
prose makes a gruesome story that is much more compelling.” Los
Angeles Magazine

LOS ANGELES Author Dawn Schiller will speak about her new book,
“The Road Through Wonderland: Surviving John Holmes” (Medallion Press,
August 2010, $19.95), with three local events.

With forewords by actor Val Kilmer and actress Kate Bosworth, “The
Road Through Wonderland” is a surreal and mesmerizing memoir about
Schiller’s underage relationship to charismatic and gregarious adult
film star John Holmes. Through a bizarre set of circumstances, Schiller (age 15) met Holmes (then 32) near his home in Los Angeles.
At first protective, Holmes acted as her guardian. But their disquieting relationship shifted to intimacy, and Schiller’s reality was turned upside down as Holmes became steeped in drugs.
A harrowing story of survival, Schiller paints a haunting and vivid
portrait of Holmes, exposing his true character apart from the man
lauded by the adult film industry and in movies including “Wonderland”
and “Boogie Nights.” Though her naive, teenage eyes, Schiller recalls
how she was thrust into Holmes’ unpredictable world-one where he began
abusing her and prostituting her for drug money, including to payback
infamous drug lord Eddie Nash. Schiller also details the aftermath of
Holmes’ involvement in the famed Wonderland Murders and how she
eventually broke free of Holmes, turning him into the FBI.
