Review Text

Gushy, gory feelthiness: written in tortuously swish gabble, or a mangledness beyond editing, and heavy on the listen-to-this italics. Michael Kouris, who at 50 or so is still teaching Freshman English or Comp Lit II, and is something of an indiscriminate satyr in bedding his boy and girl students, marries eighteen-year-old Christine a week after she enters his class. They have twins but for seven years thereafter Christine does not allow him her body. She prefers to romp about the house in outre costumes. She's eerie. She's crazy. The kids are eerie and crazy. They live in a broken-down 30-room mansion (on his salary?) - and a ghostly limo keeps driving up to the door. Then everything gets very slimy, with Christine's lifelong incest with her late billionaire daddy (not millionaire) revealed in photographs Michael finds in her mysterious trunk, her fantastic dildo (it's so warm and real!), hints of her fabulous earlier incarnations. . . . Like skinnydipping in a cesspool, and inviting your family along. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
