Nunt (book)


Nunt (book)


Nunt is Canadian writer Mingus Tourette's first book, a series of poems collectively resembling a novel. It was published in September 2004. The publisher's notes describe the book as "the shocking story of a man who walks out on his wife and embarks on a ferocious two-year odyssey of womanizing and alcohol-fuelled violence across a barbaric America".

"Nunt makes Fight Club look like Three Little Bunnies... these verses have something to mortally offend everyone who reads them. I devoured them in one sitting (before they devoured me), struck again and again by their tireless and imaginative violence - passion, really. Tourette wrenches tormented, nihilistic and surreally brutal feelings out of the pornographic and into the poetic. Like drinking yourself sober, there’s virtue in the excess." – Daniel Richler
