Orest Stocco

A long time ago, no one knows quite when, a very young man with an adventurous spirit but very innocent to the ways of the world was seduced by "Old Whore Life."  She became pregnant and gave birth to a male child, whom she named Murphy.

Born of innocence and deception, Murphy was not a normal child.  Cursed with his mother's insatiable desire to deceive the world and blessed with his father's guileless nature, "Old Whore Life" weaned her favorite child for his destined purpose to test the spirit of man with what over time came to be known as "Murphy's Law," and so it came to pass that regardless of what we do in life if anything can go wrong, it will...


Life is hard, cruel, and unforgiving, and it can reduce a grown man to say, "All we're allowed is survival." If this is true, who or what is it that only allows us survival? Is it "old whore life"? Does "old whore life" have that much power over us?

Professional Reviews

Move over Murphy's Law
Old Whore Life is a collection of personal musings that put a unique spin on Murphy’s Law.
“What goes around comes around” is an expression that has been around for a long time, and is just another way of expressing karma in action. But the curious thing about karma is that it sneaks up on you when you least expect it and creates havoc with your life at the most inopportune time. Karmic reconciliation most often occurs once the misdeed has been long forgotten, so it becomes very difficult to make the karmic connection. But what causes this karma?
Entertaining, insightful, character revealing, and filled with humor drawn from everyday life, author Orest Stocco focuses on the shadow personality by creating an image in the reader’s mind of the shadow self being like an “old whore that squats obscenely upon your shoulder” to shell out retribution for the karmic debt that one incurs with life.
Musing after musing, one becomes more familiar with the concept of the shadow self and may even warm up to the image of “Old Whore Life”. I know I did. A very delightful read, indeed!
