It reminded me a little of Transformed: San Francisco to be honest. You probably shouldn’t read those two without some time in between.
There was no female hating in Outsider. Do you know how refreshing this is? I need more books like this.
Review: Oneman Show: The Life of Bernard Perlin: The Life and Art of Bernard Perlin by Michael Schreiber
But then this biography really starts and I had fun reading it. I liked how it is rather a dialogue then some guy writing about another guy.
There are a lot of socially anxious characters in books, but usually I am very disappointed by those descriptions. Not in this case.
Here’s the thing why I love this book (I couldn’t help myself, bear with me):
Somehow it was too much and not enough at the same time.
The first third is so fucking good! McFadyen at his best. So gruesome and shocking and so very believable. Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if something like that would be real somewhere.
May I start with saying how well thought-through this world is?
Grace is supposed to be genderfluid and is not wearing men’s clothes as a disguise. But most of the time it felt exactly that way.
Oh wow. And I’m not meaning the good ‘oh wow’.
