Yet Strangely Compelling
February 12, 2007
John Cuneo's forthcoming book, nEuROTIC, has been described as "hilarious and disgusting." It's also been referred to as "humorous erotica", though this collection of bizarre coloured sketches is, I think, likely to arouse only the most sensitised of fetishists. Cuneo's characters are plain everypeople, often overweight, and frequently distorted to surreal effect. Maybe whimsical depravity would be a better description. The book is, however, funny and oddly compelling. Not least in depicting a fully-dressed man being pursued by three triangular patches of disembodied pubic hair.
Those suitably intrigued can buy nEuROTIC immediately from the lovely people at Fantagraphics or wait until March 28th to get it from Amazon. In a plain brown cover, naturally.
Update: Apparently the notion of being pursued by disembodied pubic hair has aroused interest, hence the following.
Fund this depravity, please.
