Three Novels: Ferdydurke / Pornografia / Cosmos (An Evergreen Book)

Three Novels: Ferdydurke, Pornografia, and Cosmos (An Evergreen book) - Witold Gombrowicz Fredydork, pornography, and assmos. Bloody awful. Worst three novels I ever read. Maybe the translation was bad. It probably didn't help that I read them one after the other. To think one of these almost won a literary prize is almost beyond belief. These are the kind of books that the "literati" rank high because it's supposed to be deep and they think it cannot really be as dull and pointless as it is.Somebody out there prove me wrong. I'm dying to know what the author is on about.I recently gave this away to a library because I thought someone there might be able to figure it out.
