Category:
Non-fiction: Biography
Description:
The story of John Dante immigrant from southern Italy who along a hellish journey up to and back down from the Playboy Empire lives with Hef, as Hefner was called, for 26 years and was instrumental in the success of Playboy's hedonistic years, the 1970's-'90's. John hired the Bunnies for the Playboy clubs going up around the world, trained Bunny Mothers, and managed the Playboy jet. He befriended and recounted first-hand views of some of the most popular and important figures of our time, including Hugh Hefner, whom John characterizes as a "fascinating, complex man," as well as Shel Silverstein, Lenny Bruce, Don Adams, James Caan, Linda (Deep Throat) Lovelace and myriad other personalities and celebrties. An inside look at the American phenomenon known as Playboy and, at the same time, a personal story of one of its initial key players.

Hell and Back
....This lively and skillfully written biography takes as its subject John Aimola, a son of Italian immigrants who renames himself John Dante and begins an intense relationship with Hugh Hefner, founder of the Playboy brand. The fascinating part of this book is the way Valerio relates John’s life to the great epic poem of his literary idol, Dante Alighieri, whose Inferno is based on the concept that the punishment for sin would resemble the sin itself....This might be a book about sex if not for Valerio’s ability to plumb John’s mind and reawaken him to Dante Alighieri’s system of sin and punishment, something John has put aside until the Playboy life comes to its inevitable end...
