    Download Reader ß The Lure Paperback ò Felice picano The LureEvaluating this novel poses a real conundrum for me It's so filled with implausibility that I could pick away at it for paragraphs on end especially at the loopy and highly uestionable psychological tangles in which the MC becomes ensnaredIn addition the book is longer than it needs to be the prose goes deep purple at times and superlatives abound the MOST renowned or beautiful or sought after or well built or fabulous or crowded or drug and sex saturated or despicable personplacescene everThat being said and as lost as I got sometimes in a labyrinthine plot too thickly strewn with red herrings the damned thing really held my interest Somewhere at the midway point I think I just chucked all my irritation and disbelief gave my eyes a rest from rolling and went along for the ride and enjoyed it right up to the endNOTE The paperback copy I read is from 1979 or '80 so I don't know if the novel has undergo

    Download Reader ß The Lure Paperback ò Felice picano The LureTrashy pulp rubbish Its one redeeming feature is that it goes into a subcultural milieu that does deserve attention but it's done with so little taste or tact that it's little than cut throats and hard cocks On a positive note I did admire the kaleidoscopic description of tripping of LSD

    Download Reader ß The Lure Paperback ò Felice picano The LureI had wanted to read this for years and I finally had the chance after discovering a copy at Powell's It's a page turner full of lurid details about the New York gay community in the 1970s Picano certainly knows how to introduce the right level of gruesome detail and to engineer well organized cliffhangers By the end though I had found the whole thing a little exhausting and somewhat hard to accept despite the excitement I felt The premise ended up seeming like a stretch maybe it would have been believable in a movie I'm also not sure that the protagonist ever made sense to me as a believable character perhaps though Picano doesn't want him to make sense given his circumstances Also I was a bit surprised about the sexthere was less of it than I expected This would be a great vacation read though it falls short of Like People in Hist

    Download Reader ß The Lure Paperback ò Felice picano The LureA sociology professor becomes a deep cover operative trying to suss out who is behind murders in the gay community in mid 70s New York He initially identifies as straight but his identity develops during the course of the plot Came out before the movie Cruising which is somewhat similar The other comparison I would make is to Philip K Dick's A Scanner Darkly which also concerns an undercover operative As in Dick's book there are a lot of psychological games being played and it's unclear who is worse the secret agency doing the investigation or the people they are supposed to be investigating
