Y’all know I like to share with my peeps here at More Cowbell, especially when something crosses my desk that’s just…bizarre. And when that bizarro thing is a book, all bets are off. We’ve got to open the gates to some More Cowbell-style discussion.
What other Crazy Books have caught my eye?
Part 1 – an homage to the Vajayjay like you’ve never seen before…
Part 2 – sympathy for those afflicted with Oversized Male Genitalia (OMG)
Part 3 – sympathy for those at the opposite end of the size scale
[And WHY do all these crazy books deal with genitalia?? I have no idea.]
Today, I bring you The Haunted Vagina by Carlton Mellick III.
Publication Date: September 18, 2006
It’s difficult to love a woman whose vagina is a gateway to the world of the dead…
Steve is madly in love with his eccentric girlfriend, Stacy. Unfortunately, their sex life has been suffering as of late, because Steve is worried about the odd noises that have been coming from Stacy’s pubic region.
She says that her vagina is haunted. She doesn’t think it’s that big of a deal. Steve, on the other hand, completely disagrees.
When a living corpse climbs out of her during an awkward night of sex, Stacy learns that her vagina is actually a doorway to another world. She persuades Steve to climb inside of her to explore this strange new place. But once inside, Steve finds it difficult to return… especially once he meets an oddly attractive woman named Fig, who lives within the lonely haunted world between Stacy’s legs.
“A very strange and surprisingly touching love story, despite the deliberately asinine premise. With subtle humor, surreal erotica, and some genuinely creepy moments, The Haunted Vagina is a completely unique reading experience.”
Hasn’t the vajayjay been maligned enough through the centuries without subjecting it to this? And this is Mellick’s 14th novel, so he’s obviously got a thriving fan base.
I haven’t read the book, but I agree with The Chive (which is where I got hold of this) that this belongs in the annals of crazy-ass book premises. Although I do have to give Mellick credit for the sales chops to come up with concepts like The Haunted Vagina and Razor Wire Pubic Hair and sell them.
