I'm now reading her collection "Compression Scars" and next, her novel "Skin". Her language is absolutely unparalleled and she takes leaps on every page. Her characters are eccentric beauties who are powerful, fierce, vulnerable, and yes, outsiders, but outsiders who don't see themselves that way. Therein lies the life blood of these splendid beings. All who are outside their universe, who don't understand them are empathized with, but sadly nonvisionaries.
She is at the top of my list right now of writers who rock the orbit of language with brilliance and hilarity and my LOVE for these characters she creates couldn't get any deeper. Some quotes: "The sun is a mouth rounded in terror. I was always on the hunt for a soul smaller than my own. I would give this as many stars as I can see out here in the desert tonight and that's a damn lot of light! Following the story of two teenage girls trying to score weed before a rock concert, this film takes a dark turn when they are kidnapped by a gang of convicts.
Wes Craven directs this horror film and, like many of his movies, certain plot points ended up at the crux of controversy. The violent nature of the film resulted in its being heavily censored and banned in many regions.
Still, the film has gained cult status. All the youthful beauty of Europe enslaved for the pleasure of the third Reich. The film was also banned in Australia, with a few cut releases to follow until eventually the film was passed in its original, uncut format in The story follows Brian of Nazareth, born on the same day as Jesus of Nazareth, who spends his life being mistaken for a messiah. He follows a different path than Jesus, but ultimately ends up with the same fate. In fact, there were regions that considered the satire blasphemous and it drew many protests due to the seemingly anti-religious agenda.
In many areas of the UK, the film was either banned entirely or set prohibitions to prevent the film from being shown. Many other countries, including Ireland and Norway, banned the film entirely, some of these bans spanning decades. Critics condemn the film for its depiction of former black slaves, deeming the film racist due to the difference in race relations and treatment within the live action portions of the film.
And though this was anticipated at the time of its release, the years to follow would bring the same, heated debate on race. To this date, the film has never been released in its entirety on home video in the US due to the perceived damage it would cause to the family friendly Disney brand.
One of the most iconic slasher killers out there, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre features a cannibalistic, disfigured killer that hunts down his victims and wears their skin, something five friends learn the hard way. The film is a gory take on an already violent genre, and for that reason has been banned around the world.
The film was marketed as a true story to gain viewers, though the plot was entirely fictional the film was very loosely based on the real-life murders by Ed Gein, who kept tokens of his victims in his house , which begun some of the controversy. Still, the film has helped pioneer characteristics of the slasher killer, defining them as a faceless, weapon wielding, burly and ominous character.

This sounds interesting. I think so. It sounds a fascinating read and reminds me in reading your review of the work of Fay Weldon. Very feminist, magic realist novels from the s and 90s. Whoa, reading this book does seem like jumping headfirst down a rabbit hole.
I need to reread the book! Like Liked by 2 people. I love the questions that this book is asking the ideas it explores, especially that of someone learning what it means to be a god. Though it seems like quite a challenging read. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
