i just finished 'the sluts' by him and it's totally fucked me. amazing amazing amazing amazing
It was about a boy sleeping with his step father and a man making snuff films, I think.
yeah all his books are about shit like that
what didn't you like about it?
but I remember thinking it was really empty of anything apart from attempts to shock the reader.
idk, i'm not sure exactly what book you're on about so i dunno if i've even read it. i can see why a surface reading of his stuff might seem like that but i think everything i've read by him uses that kinda stuff to tell really beautiful and intense stories about obsession, desire, the physicality of sex, metafictional commentary on identity, gay history etc etc
It was just a load of horrible sex and teenagers taking tranquillisers.
He's a real nice guy too. I just finished reading Try again. Bowled over by it.
Leant it to someone where I worked at the time to have a read.
Everyone stopped talking to me when the person told everyone about the book.
Read it in my 90s phase of reading shocking literature.
i found Frisk really beautiful as well, for the same reasons as outlined above basically
Godspeed, silver surfer!!
Didn't think there was much to it beyond the blood and guts, but some of the passages have stuck with me even now so can't have been a complete write-off
released his new novel which is made entirely of .gifs today
gonna read it when i have got this bastard 'interaction of radiation with matter' coursework shit out the way
