Kicking and Screaming (Part 2)

Chet: "You know what I noticed near the end of the book, when Grady goes to the prison? That the violence, which has up to then had a ferocious energy about it, departed from the emotional violence and became terrifyingly brutal and real. And particularly after he left the prison, and he went to find that horse...I found the descriptions of the horse to be, frankly, astonishingly beautiful, and yet disturbingly arousing. What are your thoughts?"
Otis: "Uh, yeah. Yeah. Definitely. You're, uh, you're right on, I think. You've really pinned down what it is about the book. Uh, definitely with the the prison when, uh, when Grady is, uh...he's...there's violence. There's a lot of violence. And it's like night and day. And when Grady, uh, when he saw all those horses, like you were saying, uh...and it was arousing. It was violently arousing."
Chet: "Otis, have you read this book?"
Otis: "Yeah." (Pause) "No."
