Overview

Are You Loathsome Tonight? by Poppy Z. Brite

Poppy Z. Brite, author of four novels, LOST SOULS, DRAWING BLOOD, EXQUISITE CORPSE, and THE LAZARUS HEART, plus several collections of short stories, has gone to the edge and back with ARE YOU LOATHSOME TONIGHT (titled SELF-MADE MAN in Europe). Join Poppy as she explores the outermost regions of murder, passion, death and religion in twelve extraordinary short stories. With a foreword by horror master Peter Straub and an afterword by Caitlin R. Kiernan, Brite reaches new heights--and depths--in her explorations of mind and spirit.

For me, this book is a toss-up along with Hubert Selby Jr.'s "The Room" competing for the title of THE MOST VILE BOOK I HAVE EVER READ.

Bother with this messy nasty mish mash

This book falls well short of Drawing Blood and especially her magnum opus, Lost Souls. This book's stories are almost needlessly grotesque. While I know a horror writer's bread and butter are indeed the macabre, the morbid, and, yes, the grotesque, it seems that here these devices are used without discretion, that is, without furthering the story. Brite is capable of so much more than this.

This short anthology was as always a great read. Not her best, but then I am really attached to Drawing Blood as I am sure most readers of Ms. Brite's work are. In this group of short stories you see Steve and Ghost once again and Zach and Trevor. I love the way she has a tendency to group all her books together through the characters. Great!
