I honestly cannot figure out how I feel about this. There is part of me that is utterly repulsed, and feels I should be offended by this book. And then the other part of me actually enjoyed it, and thought parts of it were really kind of clever and effective.

I'm also totally having a Thing because this was purchased for my library (where I am now director) and I'm... not sure it's actually appropriate for my collection. I mean, it's REALLY porn-y. And I don't usually say this! I was defending "Binky Brown Meets the Virgin Mary" the other day, explaining to someone that all the penises are there for a reason. But I'm not so sure about this one. And I feel guilty about that.
