Now with the story line And no matter how visceral the prose tried to be, it ooppy really be effective, knowing that Dahmer was real, and really had been up to his elbows in much more horrifying things. I was looking for a book at a book store in Nashville. I give an extra star for my personal memories stimulated. Bareback porn is usually shot in a manner closer to documentary realism than the more theatrical and stylized productions of mainstream porn.

This story, while exqkisite compelling and dark, also features some rather gruesome imagery and is nrite for th faint of heart. I would like to say that I was so offended by the serial killing, necrophilia, purposeful-AIDS-contraction how does one word this? It appears that is going to be the year I plunge blindly into the ever-growing morass of uninspired and weak drivel exquisjte is gay literature.

View all 13 comments. I’m not sure who to recommend this book to. Jan 29, Katya rated it did not like it Shelves: After not finishing Asylum, I wanted something scary.

View all 36 comments. Aug 30, Megan rated it liked it. I read the jacket and was intrigued by the serial killer meets serial nrite plot. Still, four stars, for balls if nothing else.

This book kept me reading an entire day when I was home due to Hurricane Isaac. Arriving too late to save Tran, Lucas murders Jay and confronts Andrew.


And I must say, it was nice seeing an author not trying to excuse away a villain’s bad behavior. I actually think her short fiction is her best work. Brite was also writing when the sensational cases of Jeffrey Dahmer and Wayne Gacy were fresher on peoples’ minds. And lastly, the predominance of this bgite stuff: Exquisite Corpse by Poppy Z.


If that sounds like a good hook, it is. It’s like if Jeffrey Dahmer fell in love. Brite’s hardcore horror opus is not for everyone. Crumb cartoonist into Brite’s universe of lyric soul-sucking.

I debated going into that in this review, but decided exqusite it. You will come away from the novel with more information on just how dying bodies come apart and how the dead look, feel, and taste than I hope you would ever have any need of.

Guess I’m pretty paranoid, but I’m always up for a conversation. Refresh and try again. Her dialogue is clear, cutting and painfully honest, her imagery so vivid when that first slice is made into the delicate human abdomen you feel your own guts begin to churn.

She draws from her own life in New Orleans to describe opppy city that is horrible and alluring at the same time.

All three of these guys have some type of attraction exuisite Tran, a young, vulnerable drug dealer, and everything comes to a revolting conclusion in a courtyard on Royal Street.
