puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puhr-puhricks-pricks & cunts & cocks: pussy pussy pussy pussy pussy pusses pusssssssssss; buhlllanaaatt; fffffuullll; take me; vomit take me; boirllll: Blah: Oh cancer sprout in my lungs: splonnnnn"" Wah-wah-wah-wah-wellllllll: wah-wah-wah-wah-waht can you say? Peter Prince is a Pop novel. Peter Prince is an Op novel. Peter Prince is an Exaggeration. Peter Prince is an Exasperation. Yes there is a point of view as when Peter Prince marries Bepo so that he can take care of Twang-Nue, adopted Oriental with a left side roasted by napalm, and later in Peter Prince's European travels when he runs into the Jew who had been a German officer during that war and other ex-aggerated episodes. Perhaps ""the whole problem with this troublous novel is that it probably found the wrong author in the first place,"" and since Mr. Katz comments that he is an admirer of Ronald Sukenick (Up. p. 484) it does seem a pity that their respective muses do not share the same talent. Sukenick has strictly one-Up-manship all the way.
