About

Black Passenger Yellow Cabs: Of Exile and Excess in Japan is the acclaimed writing debut of Jamaican-born author Stefhen Bryan.

In this candid and moving memoir, Bryan conveys an incredible journey from a childhood of third-world poverty to an adulthood of sexual addiction in the Land of the Rising Sun. His riveting narrative is earning high praise for melding lyrical eroticism with insightful explorations into the societal and cultural mores of contemporary Japan. Bryan includes detailed historical and statistical analysis of Japanese culture and customs, in addition to what one reviewer calls “sex research that would make Kinsey proud.”

Sensing the excitement for the book's subject matter and following encouragement from the thousands of readers, author Stefhen Bryan and director Giuseppe Asaro took up the challenge of transferring the gritty, explicit scenes of the book to the video format. The first step in this process is to create a pilot episode for the upcoming Vook edition of Black Passenger Yellow Cabs.

With your pledge support we can bring this multi-faceted, international work to visual life and tell the author's intriguing story in an exciting new way. Thanks for reading about this project and we look forward to presenting the pilot to you later this year.
