Ellinor's Litventures

This blog is about my literary adventures in different genres. I like variety in my reading and will read books from most genres but particulary book with some literary merit.

The most obscene book ever

Story of the Eye - Georges Bataille, Joachim Neugroschel, Dovid Bergelson

If you felt scandalized by Fifty Shades of Grey or Wetlands you should not even consider reading this book: this is the most obscene and perverse thing I ever read. And it was published in 1928! I guess only a French writer can publish something like this and even use a style which makes the book worth reading. I can't really say I'm shocked by the book, but I'm definitely fascinated. I feel very voyeuristic right now!
