Libby's Weird, Perverse Novel to Be Reissued

Lewis Libby, possible future inhabitant of the Federal penal system and former top aide to Vice President "Dick" Cheney, published a novel called The Apprentice in 1996. Due to Libby's recent notoriety, it's being offered for sale again. I haven't read it, but it involves murder and prostitution in Japan. In one of the novel's scenes a young female being held in a cage is, at her captor's instigation, raped by a bear, thereby combining both pedophilia and bestiality. Now who the hell would dream up something like that, much less publish it in a novel?

What kind of people are we dealing with here?
