I love the symbolism in this book. The debasement of basic humanity within the book is exciting and frightening to watch. I enjoyed this book even more after teaching it. I like to reread it every few years or so. Reread it in 2009. Still love it.
Arno Strine is able to stop time, and what he chooses to do with that power is take off women's clothes and get himself off. I'd be lying if I didn't call this one of the best-executed literoti I've come across. And if I didn't agree that the overall premise is cleverly pornographic and a peep at the writer's condition at the same time. And damned if it isn't finally an observant meditation on loneliness. That said, the overall effect of all that outre sex is like the feeling you get after consuming seafood paella and 2 grilled lamb chops and a mezze platter and lemon creme brulee with berries and molten chocolate tartlets and a full jug of sangria -- a puzzled incredulity that you just can't take any more of what you'd always thought you were missing.
