Don't bother with this pseudo-intellectual doppelganger of Fanny Hill. It's Gravity's Rainbow without the dirty words as a stepmother does "the deed" with husband and young son. The real treat is that chapters are keyed to works of art (naked and imaginary). Oh, let's not forget the hero's chapter by chapter descriptions of his bodily ablutionsparticularly the one about his toilet ritual. Nobel prizepfffft!

Intellectual, odd erotica.

Erotic, but not really my cup of tea. Maybe it's the translation.
