This is an unusual book. It is at the same time crude and lyrical. It deals with crass subjects: sex, violence, and food, and a lot of the humour is somewhat low-brow; yet it is almost written in prose. Stanley Manly seems to have mixed very clever lyrical, almost poetic writing, with a very basic, almost non-existent plot. In other words, It isn't what he says that I like, Its how he says it. The book has other virtues as well, Its extremely funny for one, I laughed out loud at some moments. Like other books from Action! It is full of sex and violence (and food). A good laugh and worth reading for the unusual writing style.
