    He wrote an essay called 'My Three Stooges,' ridiculing authors John Updike, John Irving, and Norman Mailer.
    On 'A Man in Full,' Norman Mailer wrote: 'At certain points, reading the work can even be said to resemble the act of making love to a three-hundred-pound woman. Once she gets on top, it's over. Fall in love, or be asphyxiated.'
    'I am Charlotte Simmons' received the Literary Review's Bad Sex in Fiction Award.
    One of the passages reads: 'Slither slither slither slither went the tongue, but the hand that was what she tried to concentrate on, the hand, since it has the entire terrain of her torso to explore and not just the otorhinolaryngological caverns.'

    He published two best-selling books on the same day (1968).
    He traveled with Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters on a bus tour through the USA. He stayed sober and avoided drugs the whole time.
