Johan jobbar i servisen på Hard Rock Café och rör sig bland andra unga och vackra i Stockholms nattliga värld. De lever häftigt och händelselöst med likgiltiga rika föräldrar, droger och stor ensamhet under ytan. Livet är en fest, men en fest helt utan illusioner. Per Hagmans debutroman Cigarett fick en uppmärksamhet som nästan kan jämföras med Ulf Lundells Jack. Den utkom 1991.

    " The Minotaur, or "M", is a cook at a North Carolina diner, lives in a trailer park with a motley assortment of neighbors, and is a brilliant mechanic and handyman, reveling in the delights of the auto junkyard. He has been outside the labyrinth for 5000 years, living at a time when mythological characters have to adjust to living in the mundane contemporary world. At one point, a friend recommends a book to M--Terry Southern's "Candy"--and this provides some insight into M's character. He is an innocent, the product of a sheltered environment (although he ate virgins there), making his way in a sordid world. M is the most sympathetic literary character I have met for a long time, probably since John Gardner's revisioned Grendl. Monstrous, but noble, he reminds us that nobility is not always pretty or graceful. "

    " This book was great from the start.Very imaginative.I liked all but the ending.Hoping for a sequel. "

    " I wanted to love this book, the idea really appealed to me, but I just couldn't get into it. You do feel some sympathy for the main character, but not enough to really care about it/him. The focus also felt weird to me, and by the end it felt like I learned more about working in a kitchen than about a Minotaur living in our society. I was disappointed and wouldn't recommend this to casual readers. "

    " The Minotaur, the monster at the center of the labyrinth in ancient Crete, who was destroyed by the careless hero Theseus with the help of Ariadne...is apparently still alive and working as a line cook and living in a trailer park in South Carolina. Having somewhat overcome the fierce temper that lead King Minos to place him in the labyrinth, the Minotaur attempts to lead a quasi-human existence. But just as his physiology prevents him from being comfortable in his own body, he is continually thwarted in life by his own awkwardness and social ineptitude as well as the meanness of select individuals. While I enjoyed the writing as well as the premise, I was disappointed by the portrayal of the Minotaur. The book chronicles the Minotaur as he endures one humiliating incident after another, misjudging situations and making bad choices. Centuries after escaping the Cretan labyrinth that physically imprisoned him, he is lost in the invincible labyrinth of the day to day, and has surrendered to resignation. Having lived for nearly 5,000 years, I wanted the Minotaur to have more dignity, insight, and intelligence than he did in Sherrill's characterization. After three-fourths of the book, I gave up, unwilling to sit through more embarrassment. In the end, picturing this ancient and mythical creature as trailer trash wasn't something that fit with my own conception of myth, but I would definitely give this author another try. "

    " This is so inventive, I can't begin to describe it. A minotaur serves a the mythical version of Lt. Data on The Next Generation: both human and not human. Fantastic read, did so in two sittings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dfunky1 | 12/13/2013

    " This is an interesting retelling of Greek myth that takes as its starting point the question: what would a Minotaur do in the contemporary world? The answers might surprise one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bianca Hockensmith | 11/30/2013

    " Didn't make it past page 10. Too horrible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 11/10/2013

    " Sweet, funny and strange story about what it's like to be different. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 11/1/2013

    " Although it's been a while since I read this book, it has stuck with me...and I still laugh about it, it's an odd little book, and an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 5/10/2013

    " I wanted to like this book, but I couldn't get that into it, though I did feel for the minotaur when he tries to fit in with the breast-ogling waiters at the restaurant where he works as a line cook. Maybe I will give it another go, but not anytime soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 1/11/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book about an honest, well-meaning minotaur trying to get by in the 21st century. Many laugh-out-loud situations in absurdity make this book a recent favorite of mine. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Adam | 12/21/2011

    " This was really pretty awful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen Stanton | 4/3/2011

    " Gritty realsim and at times quite profound, a glimpse at the soft user-belly of the American Dream through the eyes of a mythical Greek monster. Very original! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaye | 9/4/2010

    " I absolutely loved this book. It was unusual, combining the drudgery of a dull existence with a fantastical creature. The minotaur is old, tired, jaded, and just trying to fit in, but he can only stay one place for so long. His weariness is palpable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bernie May | 8/13/2010

    " On par with "Life of Pi" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi Buck | 7/22/2010

    " the writing wasn't amazing, but very good, and made up for by the interesting story and characters-- good food for thought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah Stone | 5/8/2010

    " This book was set in the South and that added a distinct flavor that I liked. The characters were pretty close to home. Hope and hopelessness ran all through the story. "
