Ralf Konig is a brilliant comic artist and this book is funny, outrageous, and very sexy. It was the first book of his I ever read and is an absolute classic. All his books deserve to be translated but in the English-speaking world no publisher seems to have taken them up (unlike in France where they are all available). At least this one is out there - and possibly a couple of others - and it really is one of the best, even allowing for the print quality. This is not perfect, as another reviewer has said, but nonetheless allows you to enjoy the book pretty much unimpeded. I remember when I first bought this at Gay's The Word about 10 or 15 years ago I could hardly believe my eyes - it was so much what I had always hoped to find! It couldn't be filmed and it wouldn't be the same in prose - basically it is a comic through and through, and really exploits the potential of the genre for narrative, humour and visual cheap thrills!
