Read in May, 2009

Recommended by none other than Dan Savage. What could have been an illuminating memorandum on aberrant sexual behavior, instead read as indulgent shmaltz. Author can't decide if he's going for actual journalism or some sort of misconstrued storytelling lavished with ill suited digressions. Yawn. Frankly, I'm no less than ASTONISHED at the high average rating it has here.
