Immersive landscape of violent almost physical text.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Eden, Eden, Eden (Paperback)
Eden, Eden, Eden is an ultraviolent and truly shocking text, a 160 page long paragraph of unrelenting sex and violence. It's beautiful! The subject of the book is the war ravaged landscape of Algeria, but perhaps more importantly the landscape of the body, both intermingle, boundaries blur, bestial prostitutional acts are minutely rendered giving the text an intense physical quality that fends off symbolism and romanticism. Reading this book is like watching the innards of Kurtz's mind spill open.
