Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
The highest compliment I can pay to FORESKIN’S LAMENT is this: No book I have ever read has so perfectly captured what my childhood looked like.
Like Auslander, I grew up in a suffocating Jewish environment and ultimately grew to resent the heavy-handedness of it all. Whether you were raised as a Catholic, a Mormon, a Hindu, a Muslim or any other faith, I think Auslander’s characterization of the role of relentless religiosity in the mind of a young boy will be accessible to you.
“Insightful” Review from a Mainstream Reader
Sad, pathetic, vulgar and pathologically self-absorbed.
