"A remarkable achievement, a bombastic, squirm-inducing, and belief rattling satire on political correctness shown through the lens of...two of the most unlovable (if not repulsive) characters in recent American letters...It treads on ground where authors and readers are reluctant to go, and it is bad company worth keeping."
"A bloated BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES for the pomo set, full of carefully placed products, in-jokes, and elegant blather."
"At nearly nine hundred pages, this behemoth of a book seesaws between romantic meditation and frothing jeremiad, and the relentlessly peacocking vocabulary may test the reader's patience. Still the hypercerebral [Eugene] Eyestones is an indelible character."
From the Publisher
Annotation After a 20-year hiatus from the novel, controversial writer and pyrotechnic stylist Alexander Theroux returns with LAURA WARHOLIC. Told mostly from the point of view of Eugene Eyestones, an erudite and obsessive sex columnist for a Boston magazine, the novel revolves around the heroin chic and universally loathed Laura Warholic, the ex-wife of the magazine's editor. Eyestones is both repulsed and drawn to this train-wreck of a human being, and indeed his feelings might actually be a twisted kind of love.
