      • Terry Southern

    1. funny, surreal, fast-paced, sometimes well-written and sometimes sloppy first novel from a brilliant screenwriter. unfortunately, also rather unpleasantly dated (wannabe-funny date rape scene, anyone?) and the satire often felt forced. many laugh-out loud moments but overall rather wearying. is this novel a precursor to Bizarro? i have no idea, i've never read that genre. favorite sequence: the game show "What's My Disease". you even get to see what goes on behind the scenes. nothing good, i pro [...]


    2. The first few chapters were some of the most brilliant and quirky chapters of any book I've ever read. And then it became disjointed and rolled downhill. Just ended up being okay.


    3. Inexplicable, and certainly not a comedy. Terry Southern is credited with adding whatever humor is present in the film "Dr. Strangelove," and is generally referred to as a master of dark comedy. The cover of this book declares it "The comic masterpiece by the co-author of Candy and Strangelove," though I could find nothing comedic about this thing. It could be more accurately described as a searing indictment of binding repression of the 1950's when the book was written. Perhaps the most poignan [...]


    4. The least of Southern's novels. It's not poorly written. Indeed, it has the charm and succinctness of Southern's eye toward society. But it is restrained, as if Southern wanted to write the brutal scathing things he wrote in his later novels but wasn't allowed to be too daring. The plot is ludicrous of course and doesn't make sense, but Southern hasn't pushed his satire or dark comedy far enough to be funny. Neither does he control the narrative or prose enough to make it meaningful.



    5. Pynchon-lite before there was even a Pynchon (to speak of) on the horizon - published in 1958, this darkly madcap novel anticipates the black comedy of, oh, I dunno, Crying of Lot 49 and much of what was subliminally hateful (a term that probably makes more sense to me and my LEGOland/Candyland internal logic than to anybody else) and itchingly prophetic (see previous parenthetical) of Summer of Love (era) cinema (but that's a "duh", author also wrote some of Dr. Strangelove) - and there ain't a [...]


    6. Let me just disclaimer by saying I love "Dr. Strangelove," loved "Now Dig This," the author's collection of essays, and I still plan to read "Candy" and "The Magic Christian" and "Blue Movie." But man, I was *not* feeling this. Calling it a "black comedy" seems a bit strong, as I had to scrabble hard in my heart to claw out a forced chuckle two or three times. Maybe it's just on the other side of a puritanical/rebellious wall, and it was a lot more bawdy for its time. I'm willing to make that ad [...]


    7. This is one of the strangest books I've read in my life. It's like magical realism, but without the surrealism or the poetry: it's completely prosaic. The closest book to which I can compare it is the Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov, but with the major difference being that in Master and Margarita there's an explanation for all the strange things that happen - the devil coming to the Earth and causing mischief - whereas in Flash and Filigree there is no explanation: normal-seeming peopl [...]


    8. I wish there was a 4.5 star button!As a teenager I loved this book or loved the notion of it. The chapter patterning where the scene is set in standard pulp novel and then develops in farceMaybe it's time to reread but it left a huge impression on me and Southern's style seems to be echoed in numerous films, perhaps he'd not the progenitor of this style, Joyce's extravagant descriptions in Ulysses may have paved the road for Southern but nonetheless, I loved the way he built a sterotypical envir [...]


    9. Completely worthless novel that I would have abandoned had it not been the only thing I had with me while hanging out in a hospital waiting room (and I only took it along because it was the smallest book I currently was reading) . . . had read about 20 pages some time ago and thought it pretty weird then.Disappointing because I was expecting something humorous from Terry Southern. Guess I was wrong! Just weird, made little sense, and had no point that I can see. I guess there's a plot but no poi [...]


    10. Not quite put together satisfyingly, not even in a po-mo sort of way (& I don't think he was going for that), this was still worthwhile & definitely makes me want to read more Southern. Short story collection, I'm looking at you.



    11. Southern's first novel is still a winner, with great characters, elegant prose, and thematic elements that remind me a great deal of Nabokov.
