There is a genius beneath the penciled on mustache, garish clothing and apparent fetish for feces. What makes Mr. Water's writing special in this particular book is that he exposes his role models, however bizarre and raw their innards may be, with a sense of reverence and compassion, despite their obvious shortcomings. His kindness and ultimate belief in the goodness of people is apparent, and although I did not laugh as much as I thought I might while reading Role Models, I have a renewed appreciation for his work.
Excellant. What a pleasant conversational way to hear about John's interresting personal life and his tastes through his appreciation of his role models. Yes, yes, we all know about his film exploits or public image with sex and shock, but if that was all he had to write about the book would feel very flat and two dimensional. The fact that he is so well rounded as a person and in his interests made this book my favorite of the year.
And, yes, there's plenty about sex, some wonderfully unihibited and some that is a little bit shocking for my taste. But, this just adds flavor to the soup.
Now, I'm just waiting while Amazon ships the next book I ordered from John's back catalog.
If you like good conversation that you don't necessarily agree with, that pushes you a little, you will enjoy this book.
