Re-reading Tropic of Cancer

Posted to What Are You Reading?

Still good. But man, the sex writing does get a little tedious at times. The first time I read it, it seemed like the cliched "breath of fresh air" and it still does in a way, but in another way, it sounds like locker room bragging, not literature. I mean, the part at the beginning with the woman in the dance bar, in the bathroom stall? Like, whatever dude, I've seen pictures and you ain't Brad Pitt.

Still love the guy tho. When he was on a roll, nobody did it better.
