  • Michael Turner s debut novel, The Pornographer s Poem, is neither pornographic, nor a poem, but there are passages in the book that achieve the poetic and the pornographic It s one of those narratives where if someone saw you reading it and asked what it was about, a simple recounting of the plot would be meaningless You could possibly say that it s the coming of age story about a teenage boy, nameless but slightly reminiscent of Holden Caulfield, who starts making amateur porn films after spyin [...]


  • i finished this book at la guardia on a hard little chair i then walked through the airport terminal with tears streaming down my face not because this book was particularly sad, and not because it was particularly happy, but just because it was so fucking perfectly written.


  • This book stands out in my mind as one of the great expositions of unadulterated sexual discovery and exploration I have ever come across This book stands as a reminder that sex can be an unmediated experience detached from narratives of Christianity, pornography and media.But, for most who did not discover sexuality in this way, the book stands as a stark reminder of one s own mediated sexual discovery As such, the book is strangely liberating and tragic.


  • Cathy has written Disgraceful typesetting riddled with errors what d they do, scan in a handwritten MS 1 for I , m for in , eg runnmg And ignorant mistakes, like balling for bawling.


  • I thought I d be unimpressed but it s one of the best modern pieces of CanLit I ve read in a long time Totally original, highly recommended.


  • This book is what Catcher In the Rye should be or should have been It definitely left me with questions than it answered Excellent exercise in narrator trustworthiness Well written, with an energetic pace and format Interesting, believable characters like people I knew or the ideas of people or can personally relate to in some way or another At times incredibly funny and or disturbing, but mostly concerned with truly difficult although relevant and, arguably necessary subject matter, particular [...]


  • It s about well, I don t know exactly the best way to describe it An unconventional sort of coming of age story, maybe Or, about a kid that growing up, his adolescent sexualization and his foray into the world of pornography But that doesn t really say it, either I don t know It doesn t have an easy pitch The plot is really beside the point anyway.What I can say is that I was really hooked by this book I had a hard time putting it down, and am going to be musing over it for quite a while.I enjoy [...]


  • Fallon forced me to read this She got it at the college bookstore really cheap and wanted to discuss it with someone For a book with pornographer in the title, it isn t surprising that there is plenty of very graphically detailed sex However, it s anything but pornography The book is a page turner Maybe it s because I m stupid, but I didn t catch on to what was happening until the very last page All of the characters are beautifully flawed, especially the unnamed protagonist They re not the type [...]


  • i found this book to be a bit of a disappointment after reading american whiskey bar which i loved and reading a synopsis of this book, i was very eager to read it, the plot sounding like something i would really enjoy however, the story kind of falls a bit flat and wasn t really what i thought it was going to be maybe my expectations were too high in general i thought it seemed a bit sloppy and rushed.


  • One of my favorite books It s not for the faint of heart considering the graphic depictions of sex but it s all necessary To me this is a coming of age novel that actually depicts all the feelings and frustrations associated with growing up and having sex The ending literally knocked me on my ass because I NEVER saw it coming and you ll want to immediately reread it to see how obvious the whole thing is.



  • Incredibly brilliant Each of my friends who have read it have interpreted it differently to me But I need to re read because I m still not sure


  • Quick and compelling, even on re read, with a sharp ending and tight storyline I tend to find familiar settings jarring in fiction, but not so much here, perhaps because of the timeframe 1978 80.


  • I m finishing it because I started it, but I m not as enthralled with it as I expected to be I d heard such good things about this book, but Maybe I just waited too long to read it.


  • This is, by far, my favourite book of all time I have read it and re read it so many times I can even begin to guess the amount.


  • I loved The Pornographer s Poem as a fairly young teen, and I was worried it wouldn t hold up It does It s as strong as I remember, and I m going to have to buy it now.



  • Should I give this book another chance The reviews here are mostly positive, but I read the novel when it was first published and found it dense and uninspiring Did I miss its genius



  • An interesting premise couldn t save this book from being a bit too rambling The graphic sex scenes bordered on overly gratuitous just for the sake of it.




  • Unique, specific and not for everyone It s one of those books that you ll either love or find utterly tasteless Inspired and raw take on young sexuality.
