someone had to make the world spin a little faster and henry did it. there's a reason for the vernacular and it's here in henry's prose. thankfully someone put the right twist on the titty of society and came down off the high horse of so called literature. his works are earthy and real, there's a smell, a dangerous smell to them. he's smashed around a bit by the fred ward portrait of him on screen but he does ok otherwise. put yourself in his position, a man with a few francs in his pocket, slumming it in paris, i'd hitting up anais nin for lunch and blowing a bit more on hookers too.

This book changed my life. The profound insights, fiercely intellectual content, and poetic phrasings scattered amongst the sociopathic hedonism of this book is beautiful. This book led me to a spiritual awakening, a new appreciation of life, a new perspective on the world. It's inspiring and powerful, entertaining and thought-provoking.

If you're one of those sensitive types, the kind of person who likes to take the self-righteous holier-than-thou moral high ground, you may not be able to look past the lewd behavior in this book. Then again, you may not have the intellectual capacity to handle the real meat and potatoes of this book anyway. This isn't Naked Lunch. This book actually has something worth saying.

If you aren't a prude, I couldn't recommend this book more.

I read this book as I found it in the used paperback section of the "classics" section of our local used book store. It was horrible. I read everyday, and have covered many books in my lifetime, and this novel ranks in the top 5 worst books of all time list. It was not a deficiency in writing ability, which I could have forgiven, but the taste level and subject matter of the content of the book. If someone recommends this book to you, it probably means they are a sadist that gets particular joy in the harm of women. Seriously, do not waste your time.
