Quote from: theotherjohn on December 14, 2011, 07:52:18 PMHave only read Dworkin's Ice and Fire which I recall being a good novel - I guess this too was another thinly veiled autobiography as fiction. Must have read it about 7 years back though so my memory is hazy on finer details, although I do seem to think there was a similar breakdown of the protagonist's state of mind/storytelling technique near the end of that novel too (or maybe all the way through it even?), with an increasingly repetitive use of phrases, words, sentences building up in quite an effectively despairing way. I've got Mercy somewhere too (maybe in both paperback and hardback editions even) but it's unread for some reason - I'll have to dig both of them out for a refresh.

Because, you know, it propagates for the killing of men, and that's a hate crime, and whatnot. The cock-ripping feminists are taking over.
Quote from: pestdemon on December 17, 2011, 04:05:31 PMThe actual performance of the play sounds rather intriguing. First, all the women in the audience are allowed to enter. Not the men, They have to wait outside for a while, and when they come into the room, the spotlights are on their seats (separated from the women of course), and both the female audience + the actor (think it's a one-woman show) stares at the men, who are throughout the show ridiculed and questioned, victimized, used as props. I'd go and see it. Sounds like a high-brow CON-DOM performance, wil you submit to the abuse?
