    We are like lutes once held by GodBeing away from His warm bodyfully explains our constant yearning HafizI started Sophie's Choice in a busy hotel lobby awaiting my visiting sister's arrival having no idea I was going to be immediately introduced to a 22 year old Southerner named Stingo and the first of his many erectionsHis erections? What?I went into this read almost “blind” knowing only that the author William Styron received the Pulitzer for fiction in 1968 for The Confessions of Nat Turner and that this novel Sophie's Choice published in 1979 would attract attention as a movie than a book Most of us would come to think of Meryl Streep as Sophie whether we saw the film or not I didn'tSo back to the busy lobby where I'm sweating out the first of Stingo's erections and looking around the room wondering if anyone has any idea what I'm reading they didn't and even though I was tickled beyond belief to find humor and sexuality in a book that I thought took place in Poland during the Holocaust I was also totally confusedWait this is funny? So funny This is sexy? Oh SO sexyBut I thought this was about Meryl Streep er I mean Sophie Zawistowska and her making some awful choice during the Holocaust?Yes it's about that too but it's also about Stingo the 22 year old virgin in 1947 who just CAN'T GET LAIDPoor Stingo Before I knew it I was on every date with him from the pious Christian virgins to the overanalyzed Jewish cock teases his words with him for every deplorable hand job and every salivating moment when he wondered will it happen tonight??By the time the voluptuous highly sexualized Sophie enters his life you can't help but think Oh it's her it's got to be her And while you're spending most of your time wondering if Stingo is FINALLY going to get lucky with Sophie you then meet Sophie's beau Nathan Landau and even though Nathan “was utterly fatally glamorous” you realize that he's in the way of Stingo's sexual dreams which puts him in the way of the plot but wait what is the plot anyway?What starts to unravel ever so cleverly ever so smoothly is that Stingo losing his virginity is NOT the plot And man can Mr Styron reveal a big picture Turns out that Mr Styron is using sex as a metaphor that all of our yearning for physical intimacy represents our bigger desire to be One and yet the irony is our excessive procreation then creates a crowded planet that disrupts us and divides us and causes things like genocide and warGroanWe are so complicated we humans We walk through most of our days and nights dazed and confused barely conscious of what we are or our true potentialAs Sophie says to Stingo as they are standing on a beach observing a small crowd “Those strange creepy people all picking at their little scabs”Yes scabs Most of what we pick at are scabsBut this book this writer does a tremendous job of showing his reader so much and so much than scabs He held on to the complicated reins of these plot lines like a master and even though this is a long and sometimes heavy book he always found a way to perk me back up with some cookies and juice The “cookies and juice” in this story were the sex scenes and the novel concludes with one of the most decadent well written scenes between a man and a woman that I've ever encountered I actually had to ask my children to please leave the room and then I had to hover above the air conditioner vent for a few minutes I'm not kidding Holy holyBut folks a lot of bad shit happens here on this planet and we can do a lot worse to each other than participate in consensual sex between adults Some might even argue that it's a gift given to us by God And you beside me blessèd now while sirens sing to us stealthily weave us into day And in case it isn't clear I loved this beautiful book
