Semi-Book Review: The Piano Teacher

pt

This is one DISTURBING book!

If you know all the weird and disturbing books I read, you would take that warning seriously.

I have a very high disturbance threshold, thanks to having read all kinds of books that I’m sure you would not care about, and yet, this one almost made me puke, and I’m only half way through (not planning to finish it, for health reasons).

It’s about a sexually suppressed and sadist (later masochistic) piano teacher and her sado-masochistic relationship with one of her students.

Plenty of sexually explicit stuff – masturbation, bodies, caressing, beating, hair pulling, etc. That’s OK.

What’s disturbing? Graphical descriptions of female genitalia mutilation with a sharp blade, with blood everywhere. Pages and pages of it.

I don’t think I’m quite ready for this book yet, but the writing is good, and apparently it’s a pretty famous work.

Proceed at your own risk.
