    Unfinished; review to be continued There are certain books I have on a reading list that only exists in my head; I've never attempted to catalogue them on Goodreads; I've never even tried to make a note of them all in the same place They're books I remember wanting to read when I was much younger that I made notes of in various notebooks often noting them down because I thought they sounded grown up and edgy the sort of books a cooler person 'an adult' would read I think the reason I remembered this in particular was the title there's something very evocative about the name Peyton Amberg It's so deliciously American for one thing I don't know what made me buy it now though I really can't remember Add to that the fact that when I started reading it I was drunk I came home from a night out and found it in my mailbox and just ripped the package open and started reading and the whole thing has been a very weird reading experienceWhen I started it I realised that my assumption about where I first heard of it I thought I'd read about it in a teen magazine probably J 17 had to be a false memory; it was published in 2003 a long time after I stopped reading those magazines So it's a mystery Maybe I heard about it from an LJ friend or read a review in a newspaper or Plan B did they do book reviews? Because of the teen magazine thing I'd also thought it was a story about a young woman if not a teenager; maybe the cover photo also had something to do with this; in fact maybe the cover photo is actually responsible for the teen magazine association In fact Peyton is 50 years old in the present day of her story though much of it is made up of flashbacks to her younger years and in particular the early years of her clinically cold marriage to Barry a wealthy dentist with a nightmarish family Peyton Amberg is incredibly bleak about sex It's bleak about EVERYTHING but the sex is something else I mean for example Who could or would enjoy giving a blow job? She saw no pleasure in the activity some guy lying there while she tried to cram a rubbery tube down her throat; sucking away while once in a while he would twist at her nipple miming the winding of an alarm clock There was nothing erotic about it a mouthful of stray pubic hairs or the sour taste of warm ejaculate A pathetic and hateful enterprise that one was expected reuired to do like mid term exams in college or balancing a checkbook a way to make torture take place year round so one always had something unpleasant looming on the horizonWell when you put it like thatOne of the main cruxes of the book is that as a young woman Peyton hates sex and sees it as a duty she must perform a sort of mechanical function It's only when she's older that she begins to crave it but this comes with its own set of problems the belief that in a woman of fifty this craving is something ugly and repulsive; the feeling that when she looks in the mirror she sees a 'crazed slut' She constantly sees herself from the outside and for example worries about what she must look like next to a young beautiful man even when it's clear that young beautiful man desires her There's no room for Peyton to see her own desire as something liberating It doesn't matter whether she's disgusted by sex or longing for it she's crippled by her own needslack of Her experience of desire is defined by shame Besides women knew it was never as strong an emotion to get what you wanted as it was not to get it Oof

    This book was unusual Although I hated how selfish and self absorbed the character was I finished the book and found that I´d enjoyed it I didn´t find it predictable which I liked This book isn´t for happy ending lovers but I would reccommend it

    One of Janowitz's best and deeper works Funny sometimes raw and very critical we never know if the style is purely feminist or purely feminist mockery

    I felt this read as a darker version of 'fear of thing'sless psychoanalytic though and though dark not as dark as say a Hubert Selby junior taleIt was a book I picked up really unaware of its content being just something I got from a book deal at a charity shop but it's a book of a journey of sorts undertook through extra marital affairsThat's a simplistic take in honesty and the book bounces back and forth from circumstance to circumstance which initially made for some confusion but in honesty once used to it this works as a great device and allows for a full circle kind of thing
