I saw him do an interview for the Daily Show...I saw how big that book was. I can't believe the entire book being that way. Wow

its kinda funny in a creepy kind of way. The passage is really awkward and the words are just distracting...but then again, that sort of non sexiness to it, might have been the point.

but i think he might have tried to be a tad too clever .

The only book of his i ever read was "From Bauhaus to our House" and that was for a book report in middleschool. so i am pretty much ignorant of his style.

I like his skinny tyoical white suites though, in the same way that the passage in question was creepy/cliche

funny stuff

i am far too exhausted to completely understand...."Slither slither slither slither went the tongue," one of his winning sentences begins....why.

"But the hand that was what she tried to concentrate on, the hand, since it has the entire terrain of her torso to explore and not just the otorhinolaryngological caverns -- oh God, it was not just at the border where the flesh of the breast joins the pectoral sheath of the chest -- no, the hand was cupping her entire right -- Now!"

again, exhaustion....what the fuck is otorhinolaryngological?? i understand rhino and that is it...too lazy to look it up...but, i might

See otolaryngology.

oto�rhino�la�ryngo�logi�cal � (-l-rngg-lj-kl) KEY �(Adjective), oto�rhino�laryn�golo�gist (Noun)

Otorhinolaryngology is the type of medical specialty that drives the layperson to despair, both of pronouncing the word properly and of having any notion of what it means. The words ear, nose, and throat are quite clear, however, and that is what is meant by oto-, rhino-, and laryngo-, which are the forms of Greek ous, "ear," rhs, "nose," and larunx, "larynx or upper part of the windpipe," respectively, when used in combination with other word forms.
