HASH(0xa7c75828) out of 5 stars Wild and a good way, I think... Sept. 7 2015
By Kyle Michel Sullivan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not for someone who wants a nice easy read of short stories. Some of them are crazed (like a man fantasizing or actually being raped to death by a big cat in the zoo) and some are brutally honest (like an autobiographical story about participating in a porn film). Kevin Killian's style is clean and crisp; he tells the story with just enough flair. My only complaint is sometimes he cuts them a bit too short, like he's reached his maximum word allowance. Minor quibble.

If you want an adventurous journey into a wild and crazy world, this is the book for you. Sort of the anti-Cheever, but in a good way.

By David Sellers - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Kevin Killian's blend of fiction with nonfiction makes for an incredible avante garde hybrid publication. With the caveat that you must absolutely expect the sexually unexpected, this book is a profound source of inspiration for any writer questioning just what limits can be pushed -- Killian urges us throughout to just go for it! Beautiful, magnetic. I put it down, only so that I could savor each individual piece on its own - DS
