Review: High Risk

High Risk
High Risk by Amy Scholder

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

If there were half stars, this would be a 1.5. I liked the non-fiction essays better than the short stories - the chapters by John Preston, William S. Burroughs, and Dorothy Allison were the best, and I was surprised to really enjoy the poetry by Essex Hemphill. I didn't much like The Story of O, so I think this confirms that I don't much enjoy reading about S&M, and since I really didn't like Rip-Off Red, Girl Detective and the Burning Bombing of America by Kathy Acker, I guess I'm not surprised that I still don't like her writing. Most of all, this book leaves me wondering if homosexuality and S&M are the only two kinky things out there.
