    Paperback ¶ Myra Breckinridge/Myron ePUB º myra pdf, breckinridgemyron free, Myra BreckinridgeMyron ePUBGore Vidal’s satirical novel “Myra Breckenridge” was at one point shocking That it is no longer shocking and in fact so ridiculously un shocking as to be a soap opera cliche is a testament to how much society’s views have changed on the book’s primary subject matterOstensibly the book is about a lot of things Vidal was a humorous and caustic social critic who like some of his relevant contemporaries Kurt Vonnegut Norman Mailer Philip Roth explored the inanity of the times primarily the ‘60s and early ‘70s through a surrealist lens “Myra Breckenridge” lambastes Hollywood the Republican Party and feminism but the primary focus of his ire is on society’s gender roles

    Paperback ¶ Myra Breckinridge/Myron ePUB º myra pdf, breckinridgemyron free, Myra BreckinridgeMyron ePUBI will give you one star because your prose is so delightfully bitchy Gore Vidal especially the introduction told from the point of view of Gore Vidal but no because this book is bad stupid Like okay sure dumb fluff sixties ueerness obsessing about the movies of the forties because you're a silly two dimensional cartoon all that stuff is great But just as you get to write about trans women without doing any research and therefore just make stuff up like 'estrogen impedes healing' and 'estrogen kills beards' I get to call you on it AND the thing with the mind blowing disclosure that the protagonist is trans It was boring the first time even though okay Myra Breckinridge might actually have been the first time Also rape isn't funnyYou know what is funny though I am three songs into it and the new trail of dead album is good I had given up on those guy

    Paperback ¶ Myra Breckinridge/Myron ePUB º myra pdf, breckinridgemyron free, Myra BreckinridgeMyron ePUBMyra Breckinridge is one Sick Twist I found this book shockingand I am not easily shocked Myra is a trannie a sadist a revolutionary and completely nuts However Vidal's 1968 title character cannot be classified with most of the one dimensional psycho transgender characters so common in our cultural production Dressed to Kill Sleepaway Camp and Silence of the Lambs to name a few Myra believes that all human relations are based on the desire in each of us to exercise absolute power over others Her uest is to become an all powerful user of men Though her methods are brutal her fierceness is admirable and her biting social commentary is astounding Gore Vidal's writing is groundbreaking stuff Beyond the explicit explorations of sex and power he also slips in passages like the following the good drive cars that fill the air with the foul odor of burning fossils and so day by day our lungs fill up with the stuff of great fern
