Hogg

'“There’s no question that Hogg by Samuel R. Delany is a serious book with literary merit.” —Norman Mailer   “Hogg is a truly significant book. It is distasteful, raw, and upsetting; it also treats some of the sexual taboos that Americans do not want addressed in either art or politics. Hogg is an artistic triumph, as well as a political one.” —The Review of Contemporary Fiction   “Hogg is a truly experimental novel. . . . A minimalist testing of a single hypothesis. It wants to know to what limits appetite can suffuse consciousness before that consciousness stops being human.” —Lambda Book Report   “Hogg is a terrifying journey into the body and soul of a man who embodies all the nighmarish excesses of our century, a creature as much a part of the fever-dream of American life in the 90s as Jeffrey Dahmer. . . . [We read] of such monsters as Delany’s Hogg with pity and horror.” —Elizabeth Hand   “Hogg is the only novel I have ever rejected solely because of its sexual content.” —Maurice Girodias   “Hogg [is] the most shocking novel published in the twentieth century.” —Larry McCaffery, Columbia University Encyclopedia of the American Novel'
