    ✓ srlltd Midnight CowboyBookended between the ivory tower academic solitude of Stoner and the desperate plight of the forgotten poor of Mumbai in A Fine Balance I have discovered another kind of loneliness between the pages of James Leo Herlihy It is the loneliness of a Forest Gump unrelieved by the sort saccharine fairytale happy endings that pulled this particular movie down for me Instead of a box of chocolates Life has given Joe Buck only sour lemons One night he dreamed a dream that would become recurrent a dream of an endless chain of people marching across the side of the world From his vantage point in some chill and dark and silent corner he could see them coming up from over the eastern horizon all joined at the bellybutton by a golden rope of lig

    ✓ srlltd Midnight CowboyThis was hard to read Really hard Authors like Cormac McCarthy seem to want to sink into and wallow in depressing and disheartening; Herlihy was just handing me a world and saying here here is how it is and something about that was cutting me on every single page I actually took a break from this book for a day or two because I wasn't ready to be brought back into Joe Buck's mindHerlihy demonstrated a great ability to write compact s

    ✓ srlltd Midnight CowboyMidnight Cowboy is one of those books that has not profited from the reputation of its far better known movie version Almost everyone has seen the great John Schlessinger movie of the sixties but very few have read the source novel also called Midnight Cowboy And what a shame Herlihy’s novel is so beautifully written and executed that you fall into its spell with the first sad story of the

    ✓ srlltd Midnight CowboyAs promised our hero is young dumb and full of cum He may not be a real cowboy but he's certainly from Mishima Country But the rest of the story was a bit of a disappointment There's not as much sex as you'd think the violence is weird there's a really boring scene at Warhol's Factory or similar and I found it hard to care about Ratso
