If you were this would be the easiest review ever to write. He has a dark and twisted mind that Hwrmann adore. It could have gone anywhere and those guys let them go in all these different places in those years. Anyway, I love the “Huh” feeling at the end and all uncomfortable mutiilados in the dark. The kids w I don’t know if anyone else on goodreads is a fan of Canadian sketch comedy show Kids in the Hall? The kids would dress up as women and they had this great sexless thing going on.
Because they weren’t really women they were a distorted idea of women best of all was when they’d transcend that. I particularly like Dave Foley in ungaar skit.
Los mutilados / The Maimed : Hermann Ungar :
There was another side of Bruce too. I remember coming home from work as a teenager to watch reruns on Comedy Central during my lunch breaks. It was a bad day if it was the “Bar fight” episodes. This thing goes on forever and ever! I guess they could take it inside or outside, like men or women. Hermann Ungar’s The Maimed is like that. It starts out with me feeling at home in this deeply paranoid mind.
Ungar has chairs to sit in and watch the wallpaper fade. I bet I would know every crack in that ceiling given enough time. The paintings would have eyes that seem to follow your every move.
Polzer is twisted up inside to where he’s sexless because he doesn’t leave that room for anyone else. He doesn’t touch himself. He doesn’t even know it any better than when he first got there too scared of the eyes. It’s the kind of sexless that thinks about sex all of the time and missing the point.
The widowed landlady could have been played by a man in my mind. Predatory and not about sex either.
Hermann Ungar – Wikipedia
I bet I would be able to feel the sweat on the collar. Not strong enough for a woman. But it is not the worn in feeling at home lis it couldn’t go anywhere or at least would not be afraid to if it was going to go that way. Polzer meets his childhood companion, a richie Karl, when he is fat and abscessed into an early death bed.
This part reminded me soooo much of a great short story in the Edogawa Rampo short story collection that I read in The story was about a wife who takes begrudging care of her impotent amputee of a husband I’d wonder if he read The Maimed but that’s gotta be one of those timeless things.
I was worn down too, of the en passe. Fear is hard to sustain before it turns into something else.
Like the stale odor of an old dog fart. This was like ungaf combination of the short effects of being scared or horny and taken waaaay too long. It became being tired. Polzer never sleeps but I do.
But when it was good it was good. My favorite part was the longing that Polzer felt for the childhood kisses from Karl. How he notices that Karl’s innocent son Franz looks as his father used to. The mutiladks he had to cry and look confused to get them. This guy doesn’t get any love he can ask for. It is really too bad if no one knows what I’m talking about. That could have been the best ever comparison I’ve ever made on goodreads.
I’m gonna look so dumb! Everyone else probably said Kafka. There was a murder and someone was beaten to death. View all 18 comments. Aug 28, knig rated it really liked it Shelves: The centrefold here is a Karl, and he has Aspergers. Like Sheldon in the Big Bang Theory only more so.
It is extremely well rendered. So meticulously laid out I began acquiring neurotic baggage as the book went along: Both protags are socially lis recluses who fall sexual prey to malevolent fat older women housekeepers. What is this with the fat evil women? Now the muitlados woman has been a goddess associated with fertility and life since the Babylonians at least.
I suppose if one has to become a sexual slave it might as well be to a fat woman. Or, alternatively, if one hates women and Karl does,then maybe on a scale of one to ten where ten is the most hideous prospect, the fat woman scores. But what do I know? So, this mutilasos book is about freaks.
The narrative crests on a wave of building paranoia echoes of Kraznakohai to be foundwith multiple layers of symbolism, expressionism and dreamworks in the spanner, revolving, of course, around Karl, the Aspergers sexual slave. Everything hangs together with mesmerising glue: View all 11 comments.
