I almost want to add this book to my "graphic novels" shelf, not because there are any graphic images whatsoever but because Bataille's prose is so over the top and gratuitously sexual that it seems an appropriate designation.

Wow. I'm going to have to delve further into the academic literature in order to decipher the significance of this book...cause I just don't get it yet. So far all it brings to mind are disturbing images of eggs, eyes, and bull testicles...maybe someone can explain it to me?! I'm definitely curious!
