Philip Roth

I just finished reading EVERYMAN by Philip Roth (THE HUMAN STAIN, GOODBYE, COLUMBUS; PORTNOY'S COMPLAINT, etc.) and I sincerely wish that I had a magic wand because I would wave it around and bestow the following three gifts on Mr. Roth:

1) Immortality. Perhaps with the relief this knowledge would bring he could write a different g*ddamn story for once. Something decidedly NOT morbid and death-obsessed.

2) Limitless pudenda. This would no doubt enable him to focus on something other than, well, pudenda and his deep, deep, nearly unnatural desire for it, especially when it's on a female literally whole quarters of centuries younger than he is. Roth (in his 70's himself) would like us to believe that 70-something men are what 20-something women are looking for in a casual lover.

3) Ability to Get Over Himself.

What I am saying is EVERYMAN was like EVERY other book Roth has written and I feel like a sucker for reading it.

Wait a minute, you've read all his other books and you didn't know he doesn't write stories, he only writes about pudenda?

Oh, I get it! You were leading us into thinking about porn lit and your quintessential womanly hawtness at the same time, so the drool (and miscellaneous fluids) will short out the keyboard and you can take over the Cellar for your private porn site.

Such a tricky vixen. I don't think my keyboa......bzzzt...snap.....arc....

2. pudenda 12 thumbs up
The Latin word for "shame," some Victorian clown thought it would be a great euphemism for female genitalia, possibly because he felt shame for wanting to see some.

May also have, over time, devolved into "pussy".
"'Pudenda' was Latin for 'shame'?"

"Yes, and 'vagina' meant 'scabbard'. Isn't studying Latin fun?"

But a washcloth, moistened in warm water, can take care of most of that.
