Hey! According to this Norman Mailer bio, one reviewer called his novel ANCIENT EVENINGS "holistic poop." He didn't mean it in a nice way! But Mailer had it put on a poster advertising the book. You know how bad reviews will often intrigue me while good reviews make me bored and surly? So, Bill Boyle is bringing me his old copy of ANCIENT EVENINGS from Brooklyn when he returns. Hmm, it says in this summary here that the protagonist will be "supping on a paste made of bat dung," so I have that to look forward to.
