Servir al apetito en todos los aspectos ha sido el lema de su taberna: Both a condemnation of the myth of romantic love and an angry defence of women’s sexuality, Lust is pornography for pessimists.

Oct 07, Olethros rated it liked it. But I wouldn’t go ahead and build on it if I were you.

The ending event was most striking and disturbing of all, and says a lot I think about the luxt of the woman in this book, that is, as a vessel for the man in ways both literal and figurative. This novel makes me think. Page Due to passages such as these I totally lost focus on the story.
Which means Gerti – his wife and property. Women Writers in German-Speaking Countries. Not a pleasant b Acidic novel detailing the relationship within one well-to-do Austrian family – father, mother and young son. The poor go walking along the banks with their children, where chemicals corrode the waters.
Quite a strange but brilliantly written mixture. Perhaps she could have the fuckers skiing backwards, or perhaps in reverse? Apr 08, Bronwyn rated it did not like it Shelves: I might return to this. Feb 10, Karmen rated it liked it Shelves: Its prose is all over the place, the uelinek is depressing El resto del libro lo llena el estilo rocoso de Jelinek.

I ended up giving myself more enter Mentioned that I wanted to read Women as Lovers and Carol sent this to me par poste or maybe when we were in Lodi? Who belongs to the Virgin Mary. Because of mounting evidence and personal experience I feel confident that Elfriede is not exclusively a man-hater as others have previously suggested. The book reflects the title.
