bookshelves: fiction
Read in January, 1980

I can understand why he wanted his name taken off the film (even though the film was good), the novel is so much better. There is a belief that it is just a sexist diatribe, I think they just don't get it. Sex was becoming just another consumer good by 1969 and this is a strong statement about that fact.
