Obsession takes over two lives: one brazenly, the other more sneakily in this witty black comedy of lust, academia, and Southern manners. When bachelor history professor, Max Finster, arrives in the university community of Oxford, Mississippi, and moves in next door to Don and Susan Shapiro, all of their lives head for dramatic change. Narrator Don, a professor of English, gradually becomes fascinated by Max, his mysterious past, polymathic mind, chameleon personality and strange sexual agenda. Max gets busy ravishing a series of obese women, each larger than the previous one, as Don theorizes and looks on, sometimes literally, via a peephole he has drilled through the apartment wall. This sordid activity is set against a panorama of outwardly wholesome college life, but Don’s insider perspective digs beneath the facades both of professorial pretense and the institutionalized civility of the South. First-time novelist Galef, himself a tenured professor , writes knowingly of the academic scene, sparing no one, and sheds a whole new light on the subtleties of male bonding.
Lauren: Everything has fallen apart. Rye McAllister is gone, kidnapped off the island. Bliss just told me things about myself that blew my mind. I know she’s trying to manipulate me. She wants something from me, but I don’t have time to figure out what. The only thing I care about is getting Rye back. I’m terrified that he’s in danger. That I’ll never see him again. Never tell him how much I love him. I don’t know who took him or why. To get him back I’ll have to take the biggest risk of my life. Can I trust myself to be the person Rye needs me to be?Rye: Unbelievable. I’m being held hostage at an estate in Vermont belonging to someone I thought I knew. I’d find a way out, except for one thing. Threats are being made against Lauren. I can’t allow anything to happen to her. So I’ll go along with these ridiculous demands. I’ll pretend to be engaged to a drug-addled heiress. I’ll bide my time until I find out all the secrets being kept from me. Then the tables will turn and all hell will break loose. I’m a McAllister and no one messes with the woman I love. I just hope to God we both live to see each other again.
Justine, or The Misfortunes of Virtue, is an early work by the Marquis de Sade. It is a novella, written in two weeks while he was imprisoned in the Bastille. Unlike some of his other works, it is not just a catalogue of sadism. It is meant to bring new life to an old genre, which had the reader accustomed to see virtue eventually triumph after trials only meant to bring out its value. Sade would have none of that in Justine: in her quest for virtue, the main character keeps falling into terrible situations, which humiliate her and present her with sexual lessons hidden under the mask of virtue. She seeks refuge and confession in a monastery, only to discover the monks are perverts and to be forced to become their sex-slave; she tries to help a gentleman getting robbed in a field, but he eventually imprisons her in his dungeon, subjugating her to various sexual punishments... All of this is narrated by Justine herself, on her way to the gallocks. Napoleon Bonaparte ordered the arrest of the anonymous author of Justine and Juliette, and as a result Sade was incarcerated for the last 13 years of his life. The book's destruction was ordered by the Cour Royale de Paris on May 19, 1815.
