Me and the DevilMe and the Devil by Nick Tosches

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


In New York, an aging writer named Nick finds rejuvenation in drinking the blood of his much younger, almost too willing female partners. It reminded me a lot of William Burroughs, with its beautiful and often profane writing. It's a mix of fantasy, delusion, and rumination, full of rambling thoughts, philosophical musings, and reflections on contemporary culture. It's definitely not for everybody, but it has some devastating and powerful moments and is recommended for readers interested in a less sanitized, more raw dark novel.
