Hogg - Samuel R. Delany I started reading this book ages ago, but then I found I couldn't actually take it and I stopped and sort of forgot about it. I picked it up again today, thinking that it can't have been as awful as I remembered. Oh boy. It was worse. This book is a study in disgust. I feel like Delany went and canvassed a bunch of people and asked them what the most revolting sex-related thing was that they could think of. He then wrote a book about it. He has absolutely gone out of his way to be crude and offensive. There is nothing redeeming about his book. Not one single thing. Maybe it was a kind of tolerance test? That's the only way I can logic how this book got published. Thing is, I have no idea whether I've passed or failed by not being able to finish it.
