The Great Goodreads Censorship Debacle (Reblogged from Manny Rayner)

The Great Goodreads Censorship Debacle - G.R. McGoodreader

My favorite bit was the graphic dream sequence where the naive and grasping Sito is anally raped by the evil Nozama. I am not sure I understand the symbolism; some reviewers argue that the Japanese-sounding names signal an allusion to Mishima, but I cannot help feeling that another interpretation is possible. I am almost sure that some vital clue is staring me in the face.
