Irv’s Odyssey: Lost in a Looking Glass by Irving H. Podolsky
Sometimes you encounter a book that is so full of craziness that you can’t really believe what you just read. This is one of those – in the best way possible.
Irv’s Odessey is a fictitious memoir told in first person.
If you are under 18 – this is not for you. If you do not like to read about the porn industry – this is not for you. If you like to laugh out loud while reading some disturbing and explicit books – this is DEFINITELY for you.
Now, this book is not erotic, just sexual humor, and Irving writes it wonderfully.
I was laughing out loud at many points in this book.
Through the whole journey you get to know Irving, his background, his desires in life, and also his drug habits.
When he cannot get a good film job after graduating college, he gets thrust into the porn industry, and no matter how hard he tries, it seems as though he can never escape it. That is, until he starts working with children that are just too much for him to handle.
Honestly, there is really no other way to describe this book without me telling you to just read it. It is a crazy ride and hilarious every step of the way.
5/5 Hilarious. Explicit… but hilarious.
