In the Name of the Flesh
In the Name of the Flesh
by Ernesto Sarezale
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.00

4.0 out of 5 stars surreal queer eroticism, 28 July 2015
This is a very special book. I bought it from the author himself after I saw him perform a most intriguing (and engaging) "prose poem" about a bellybutton. The poem was great storytelling and very imaginative. It is the poem that opens the book. I have to say that the other poems in the book - even if quite different - did not disappoint. In fact, the style of the different poems can be very different; it is not common to see so much diversity in a poetry book by a single author. Some may dismiss it as inconsistency of tone. I personally enjoyed the variety. In any case, there are common ingredients to most of the poems, such as queer and gender politics, the body, gay male sexuality, intimacy,... sometimes described in rather blunt explicit terms. But always charming. There is a delightful surreal - sometimes even dadaist - element to a lot of the poems. It's a little book full of surprises particularly recommended to open minded readers.

1.0 out of 5 stars frustrating, 19 April 2013

It is almost impossible to adjust properly. I could never get rid of the bubbles - resulting in a bad (cheap) look. Applying it makes me fear that it is more likely to damage the screen than to protect it.

4.0 out of 5 stars very engaging, 1 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Homo Jihad (Paperback)
At a time when homophobic attacks in East London have been in the news and the conflict between religious extremism and sexual rights is more contentious than ever, Homo Jihad feels very "now". Set against the backdrop of homophobia in Whitechapel and queer excess in Vauxhall, the characters in this novel are memorable and entertaining. The scenes of drug-fuelled debauchery set in Vauxhall made me feel I had led a very sheltered life - and that's saying something! But that's not all there is to this novel - crucially, the author also gives the reader a look-in on the internal politics of an East London primary school and the power that institutional fears over frightening the horses can have in reinforcing everyday, casual heterosexism - fascinating but very upsetting too! These kinds of insights - as well as the book's emotional honesty and vulnerability - make Homo Jihad a very special read. I found it a lot more perceptive, engaging and enjoyable than many other 'gay novels' I have read recently.
