Esmoi is now following John Green's reviews
Esmoi and 10 other people liked Milo's review of Intercourse:
Intercourse by Andrea Dworkin
"After all of the hype I've heard about Dworkin, I found her book terribly mild to what I was expecting. I loved her style, though; blatant, angry, and poetic all at the same time.

I'm completely befuddled now about her supposed "man-hating" approac..." Read more of this review »

I read one book by Dworkin (Ice and Fire) and was so excited by it that I checked a few more out from the library (including this one). When I started to read them, I found myself so emotionally drained by the writing, by thinking about these ideas, ...more

I gave it four stars at first because it's such a disturbing read... but I keep thinking about it frequently, even a year after reading it, and I have to admit I'm still fascinated by this story. Amazed, even. It's like my worst nightmares and most a ...more

The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss

As a kid this book always made me anxious. The house gets completely messed up, the cat is emotionally manipulative, and the moral of the story seems to be that it's okay for people to do crazy shit to you (and ignore your repeated pleas for them to ...more

“The truth knocks on the door and you say, "Go away, I'm looking for the truth," and so it goes away. Puzzling.”
Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

“When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called a Religion.”

C.G. Jung
“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
C.G. Jung

Tao Lin
“He used to think things like, This organic soymilk will make me healthy and that'll make my brain work better and that'll improve my writing. Also things like, The less I eat the less money I spend on publicly owned companies the less pain and suffering will exist in the world. Now he thinks things like, It is impossible to be happy. Why would anyone think that? ”
Tao Lin, Eeeee Eee Eeee

David Foster Wallace
“There's a kind of Ah-ha! Somebody at least for a moment feels about something or sees something the way that I do. It doesn't happen all the time. It's these brief flashes or flames, but I get that sometimes. I feel unalone—intellectually, emotionally, spiritually. I feel human and unalone and that I'm in a deep, significant conversation with another consciousness in fiction and poetry in a way that I don't with other art.”
David Foster Wallace
