I wanted to take in the greased, shiny bodies of the black men and rock them inside me.

Despite what a lot of people say, regarding a few chapters detailing graphic sex and orgies, Almost Transparent Blue is a literary tour de force, written incredibly well with the finest details on everything in life, rain, cockroaches, lights, the sea, ashtrays, death, toilets, trains are all described with visually strong prose and insight.

I dreaded having to go on break and read more of this book, and did internal backflips when I noticed the a new Harpers just went on sale before I went on break and saw there was a new DFW Soundtrack for this review Do you want to know what I don’t give a shit about?

An adaptation directed by Michele Civetta is currently in production. The only factors that kept me reading were the shortness of the book and the author’s skill, because these first sixty pages were deathly boring. The author himself participated in similar things as what goes on in the book.

Have they made their leap into conformity?

The screen play was worked on by director Jordan Galland. I know like and appreciate this more more than I did before. But I think it was a book.

The doors and windows of the houses were shut, nothing was moving.
