    No one talked in there, they all screamed, sang, drooled, ate on all fours and that kind of thing We had fun This stunning book caught me completely by surprise, it is brilliant, and it s right up my alley It s full of viciousness and humor, remarkable understatement in the midst of insane circumstances, and bitter, intense irony It is a madcap romp through a hell in which our culture s most sadistic fantasies are made a concrete reality.Outrage at the commodification of women is quite appa No one talked in there, they all scr...

    Scathing deadpan pitch black satire, first on thepersonal horrors of being a women within modern society, then a broader survey of society and politics, building into a truly cataclysmic fervor In sheer startlingly hilarious vitriol, delivered in a mad rush of increasing insanity with lack of paragraph breaks to match , even punctuated by surr...
