Apparently, this book took 10 years to write and I felt every day of those 10 years before I bailed. Ancient Egypt and the court of Ramses II is fascinating, BUT the sentences were overwritten, there was a meandering plot, an excessive fascination with body fluids and smells, and a weird focus on incest and all manners of other sexual interactions. I don't know what Mailer was thinking, but, with all that, I wasn't impressed...I was bored!

Mailer was the worst writer of our major writers. And the worst person.

Companion read of Mathew Barney's "River of Fundament".

One Ka of me, lingering on the Night of Pigs, mesmerized by the splendid prose of mythical tales; 2nd Ka, pondering the murder mystery, chuckled at Great Fuck; 3rd Ka, chewing a dough of ancient civilization leavened by erotica, abandoned the thought of trashing the bread with pseudo intelligent taste... unbelievable but yummy!

Perhaps only through reading this type of book could I save my Ba without reborn. It nurture the mind in no way that non-fiction or history can provide. Imagination is human treasure, no one can live without.
