Reviews - What do customers think about The Decadent Handbook: For the Modern Libertine?

Move On, Decadent Consumer  Nov 26, 2007
The Decadent Handbook for the Modern Libertine, edited by Rowan Pelling, is terrible and I seriously recommend that anyone thinking of purchasing the book carefully examine their copy beforehand. There are small pieces of Wilde, Dowson and other British decadents sprinkled throughout the text but with the exception of an early short essay (The Flaming Heart Becomes a Fount of Tears by Philip Langeskov, an examination of the link between decadent artists and terminal disease) the selections are from modern English "decadents" and almost entirely worthless. Most wouldn't make it into Maxim so I'm not sure why they were allowed to pass muster here, unless it was to fill page count. There seems to be some connection to Green Bohemia and the La Fee brand (the editor is drinking a glass and rather obviously holding a bottle of their product label-forward), so that might help explain the weak content.
