Scott Lapierre's review
May 12, 2013
Hilarious and disturbing. Ribald and base but at the same time brainy and removed. Can be read like a dirty joke or a complex modernist treatise on voyeurism, generation gaps, war, and a whole slew of other unrelated topics. But most importantly, it's extremely fun to read. The translator (and I assume Gombrowicz himself) captures a staccato, disjointed, contradictory, sometimes breezy, sometimes stilted language that convincingly feels like an unfiltered transcript direct from a human brain. And a perverse and entertaining brain it is.
