Keep reading... it took me 1/3 of this book before I realized that there was more to the story than an effective attempt to shock and offend. Turned out to be a nuanced allegorical tale of race, america and love and anger in the post-vietnam age, as viewed through dislocated folktales and grotesque stereotype. Brutal.
