    One thought on “The Altar of the Body: A Novel”

    1. This book was given to me by Moddie, and I was not really impressed. The book said that it had won many awards, so I was expecting it to be relatively good and interesting. I was not expecting most of the book to be about strippers and people getting into fist fights and just general bad things happening in the world. I understood that people getting old and seeing themselves as they once were was the theme of the book- the author practically beats you over the head to understand that fact, but [...]

    2. The characters in this book are sharply drawn and the humor set against the heart-wrenching reality makes it remarkably poignant and in the center is this less than colorful but balanced George McLeod around whom a veritable circus of extreme characters wheel.

    3. Considering how rude I was Duff when we met, there's no way I can give him stars. Regardless: he's a good guy, and this is an even better book. Why hasn't PacU shelled out the $$ to get him on board now that his wife has graduated?
