The Lunarium — One man’s memories of the watchers and the watched
– – Named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2013 —
Vignettes of voyeurism
Provocative, orgiastic snippets from a sexual voyeur’s social life.
Written with verve and a contagious sense of exhibitionism, K’s first-person narrative is divided into 70 “things”: brief chapters that descriptively chart O’Donahue’s carnivalesque adventures at risqué live theater performances.
A wild, steamy story with erudite sex-as-art undertones.
By Kirkus Reviews March 2013
The Lunarium is a bedside reader for the adult mind. Vignettes of voyeurism are presented as provocative things to think about, watching others seeing your selves.
These sixty-nine Things are enumerated, one after another, with tantalizing titles. Lean Over and Brace Yourself. Rough before Smooth. White Women on Leashes. Her First, then Me, Said She. Door Frame Dancing.
A solarium in moonlight, the Lunarium provides a fantasy landscape for erotic tableaus witnessed by invitation only. It is a touch point as evocative scenes are set then deconstructed, elaborate orgies interspersed with the same old coo-coo-ca-choo. It’s a kaleidoscope of frank sexuality and sly innuendo.
Whatever shifts the point of view from smut to art is at work here. The Lunarium isn’t about creepy peeping, it’s a front row seat on the hidden side of exhibitionism. Immerse yourself in one man’s memories of the watchers and the watched.
