A quirky book on sex and death May 11 2000
By Shawn Punch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed reading Eroshima. Basically it's a small book with a short story and several smaller stories and japanese poems, all revolving around the theme of sex and death (death due to the atomic bomb). The author Laferriere uses a lot of the same wit, reflection, insight and humor about sex and race in the first half of the book (How to make love to a Negro). In Eroshima the main character (most likely the author) has a sexual relationship with a japanese woman and refuses to get out of bed for days. That part of the book is interesting, however, Larerriere diverts into several directions with short stories that lack a real plot. Laferriere depicts senarios of men and women from around the globe, which is interesting, but I don't think he digs deep enough or give purpose to their relationship. Overall, I think he wrote a decent first half of a book, and he could have extended that insight and humor throughout the entire book.
