The dichotomy between the simple young-adult style prose in this work and the hilariously depraved content made for a remarkable and truly unique literary experience. Every time I began to think that the novel was bordering on being too light-hearted for my tastes, the characters' extraordinary experiences brought me back to the gritty reality of the tale. Life's most formative adolescent experiences are retold in Perv through the eyes of someone who experienced them in the most unfortunate of ways.

Wow, what a ride...goes from funny, to sad, to harrowing, to poignant. Very good book, with not a happy moment to be found! I gritted my teeth a lot, and when it was over I felt oddly bereft. But hey, I like that in a book!!!

This is some pretty jaw-dropping stuff. Really evokes the chaos and flux of the 1960's. Jerry Stahl spins a great tale with a lot of humor, even when relating horrific incidents. I definitely recommend it as long as you're not a prude...
