“Mick Dementiuk writes stories of the day when Times Square was all about sex, drugs, and cold spit … about coming of age inside the just-burgeoning hardcore movie houses of the 1960s. It’s… vivid. Harsh, real, and yes, erotic.” –Susie Bright.
Mick Mykola Dementiuk was born in 1949 of Ukrainian parents in a West German DP camp, immigrating to America when he was two. After Catholic grade school & public high school in New York City, with trips to Times Square where he found his sexual life, he eventually graduated from Columbia University in 1984.
A writer with varied employment, from gyro seller at Lollapalooza to roustabout at the Big Apple Circus, Mykola helped create the magic of Cirque du Soleil performances of Alegria in Santa Monica, Chicago, Washington DC, Boston, and New York with his electrical work.
After suffering a massive debilitating stroke in 1997, Mykola eventually returned to writing, using one finger to execute the fantasies and psychological stories of his mind.
Mykola’s writing has appeared in various issues of magazines. He has other books and checking his website will direct readers to those books. He also has online credits.
