Figures in a Mirror is a complex fictional tapestry depicting the women and men who worked in the San Francisco Bay Area adult film scene in the last decades of the 20th century. The novel explores their compulsions, desires and fears and includes encounters with the supernatural, archetypal forces underlying their sexuality.
Z.D.M. Strong gives us an insider’s view of the industry. Many of the films he wrote, directed and produced in the ‘70s are now considered classics of the “Golden Age of Porn.” Vinegar Syndrome (vinegarsyndrome.com) is upgrading many of his films to blue ray and 4K. The Rialto Report includes a personal interview and other information on him (therialtoreport.com/2016/11/13/zachary-strong.)
Strong is a part native-American who has studied southwestern native-American rituals as well as Jungian psychology. Figures in a Mirror reflects this interest in his heritage and underlying archetypal themes.
