Finished: “The Ginger Man,” J. P. Donleavy (#99)

by mostnovel

Holy shit. I felt like I was literally drunk the whole time reading this. Donleavy made me read and think like I was as drunk and nasty as the main character. I felt embarrassed for him and his downward spiral. The shameless lust for unattainable money, however, keeps me from pitying him. Donleavy’s perspective largely confirmed my general sentiment that people suck.
