Reading Gay Men’s Book Club


Review for

“Our lady of the flowers” by Jean Genet.

The only book we've ever read nobody liked! The member who chose it apologised, saying he thought "Mein Kampf" might have been a better read. The rest of us were just amazed that a book could be both so constantly pornographic and so constantly boring - even my usual complaints about how pretentiously translations from the French read were overshadowed.

Yet it keeps appearing on lists of Great Gay Books (which is how it was chosen). Beware!
