This book is fresh and startling, holding back no detail. The main character's many sexual exploits are described vividly but beneath its surface, this book portrays the struggles of a young man trying to find love and poetry in a bleak world. The main character is a poet in his 20s living in Italy who sees the world as a place devoid of creativity and he feels that it is his mission to bring that creativity back into the world through his poetry. Along the way he meets many women but he ultimately discovers that perhaps he doesn't fully understand humans and human nature like he thought he did. The author is not shy with his descriptions of the sex scenes and the moments of philosophical pondering are deep and heartfelt. This book is well worth the read if you want a taste of excitement tempered with questions about the meaning of life.
