Sex and Death in the American Novel

Sex and Death in the American NovelSex and Death in the American Novel by Sarah Martinez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really wanted to love it – the title alone makes it worth reading. It never really grabbed me, though. For one thing, there were a lot of grammar and punctuation mistakes. Sorry, but I’m a real stickler. It was good to read something intelligent and I enjoyed the references to literary erotica. I found the sex scenes involving the main protagonist quite cold, though, in how they were described. Better than a 3 but not quite a 4: my finger slipped.
