Motta to date has released 3 novels: ‘Celebrity Rape’, ‘VIR(US)’ and most recently ‘40 Nothing’. He is currently working on a semi-biographical book about his relationship with his father and the cancer that ended his life, while also working on another novel titled ‘Know Thyself”, a dark philosophical tale about the imagined narratives and social constructs that control our lives.
Influences include Henry Miller, Charles Bukowski, Will Self, Noam Chomsky, Hubert Selby Jr, Dave Eggers and many more. Motta is interested in the philosophical, psychological, political and pornographic elements of the human race and how it is influenced in the current digital age by technology and where it could/may lead us.

Marcus, a 40 nothing low wage data entry clerk, twice divorced denizen of the new digital age, nightly pisses his life away on Viagra, wine and loose women found on dating apps. Caught in an infectious loop of hedonistic drunken sex, he despairingly witnesses a society controlled and manipulated by Jackson Fire, self made corporate King, founder of TV show Celebrity Rape, born out of the culture that we have become.
So desperate for fame, contestants will do anything for their fifteen minutes with a complicit voyeuristic salivating public desperate for blood and rape to keep them satiated. The excitement of 9/11 footage and beheadings of their favourite Middle East leaders they are taught to hate are no longer strong enough to meet their paraphilic tastes. But when events with those extremely close to Marcus start to become realer than reality TV, everything comes to a head…
Celebrity Rape is Kai Motta’s dystopian vision of a culture that is only literally years away. Not written to assimilate pornography, it’s an accurate description of the all encompassing perversion of capitalism, where people are literally selling themselves for outside validation. Counter balanced with real news articles every fourth chapter to give weight to the premise of the novel, Kai has weaved a work of fiction to present the terrifying horrific future that lies ahead of us all.
Think George Orwell’s 1984 meets Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games with a touch of Bret Easton Ellis and Will Self. Not for the easily offended or faint-hearted.
