Wanting and Having,
This review is from: The Wild Ass's Skin (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
Another great novel by the HdB. However, if you aren't a classic lit person, or aren't a French lit person, or if you're a person who regularly buys books on a swiveling display this probably isn't the pulp you need. With that being said, the book's theme is solid. I'm surprised Hollywood hasn't stolen it already. The work is a sort of Yang to Lost Illusion's Yin. It has great HdB commentary and insight and of equal quality if not greater to the rest of the body of works.
