Customer Reviews

I have to admit, I found a few of the drawings briefly amusing.
Michael J. Mazza
In fact, in fleshing out the characters the films suggest some of the depth that Finley suggests their conversion to screen stars has neutralised.
"videopolis"
And then she has the nerve to charge so much for a book that's so damn short.

This book is plain funny. It's a brilliant satire of the Winnie the Pooh series. I am an artist, attend many gallery showings, regularly enjoy art books, but I also have a sense of humor. If you're a human being enjoying the full range of your emotions, you will enjoy this. If you have read other Karen Finley books, don't expect a serious commentary on art theory... and that's a good thing. She shouldn't be expected to be serious/detached/humorless all the time, and neither should we. Pay attention to the warning sticker on the cover, don't open the book expecting intellectualism or deconstructing of any kind. It's just supposed to make you laugh. If this seems troubling, it might be helpful to lock yourself in your bedroom, where none of your art school friends can see you and see how low-brow you can go.

Don't get too serious, and you'll find a damned funny book. Pooh in leather - so hardcore silly. Eeyore as the depressive we've always known he is. S&M in the Hundred Acre Wood.

Let me start by saying I'm a HUGE admirer of Karen Finley. I own most of her various books and CDs and have seen her perform numerous times. However, this book is a massive disappointment. It's so bad I will have to think twice about purchasing any of her future works. Supposedly the inspiration for the book was her daughter's fascination with Winnie the Pooh stories. Karen was bored with the stories so she made a version with all of Milne's characters having various sexual fetishes and psychoses. This concept could be interesting, but Karen Finley thinks that the concept alone is hilarious. She simply presents the characters as deviants and expects us to laugh. But it's not funny. It's lame and it's lazy. Winnie the Pooh with a whip - hahahaha! Roo as a faghag - stop!you're killing me! Christopher Robin giving an enema - uncle!uncle! From the quality of the writing and the illustrations, it seems as if she finished this book in a single afternoon. And then she has the nerve to charge so much for a book that's so damn short.
At a recent booksigning in Chicago, Karen read from her book and at the end of every page she laughed quite heartily and looked for the audience to do the same; we didn't. It was one of the most uncomfortable book readings I've ever been to. I wanted to laugh just to humor her, but I couldn't. I was appalled at how bad her book was. Karen Finley is one of the most important artists in America. She's better that this (at least she used to be better than this).
Karen said she recently moved to Los Angeles to live in a place that was very, very shallow. Evidently the move has had quite an effect on her.
