really liked it
Read in August, 2008

Miller's writing is wild and beautiful. I could have loved this book, if it weren't for the unbridled mysogyny. On top of totally objectifying women (though in his defense most of the women in the book were prostitutes, so what was I expecting), I don't think the word "woman" is even in his vocabulary, he only refers to women with a word that starts with c and ends with t. It was an unfortunate distraction.
