    Damn, Girl, What s Up with Those Snakes One sure way to get me to read a novel is to divide it into chunks named after parts of the brain This wild assortment of multivocal narratives is sectioned into brainy bits and cranial curves, each named after a portion of the nervous system s HQ and attendant psycho biological offices,

    I find it very difficult to think of anything coherent and pithy to say about La Medusa I am also cognisant of the fact that I am duty bound to encourage you, the Reader of this, to become a Reader of It So what, if you shell out hard earned cash to get your grubby paws on a copy of this, will you discover Well, we are in L.A, thoug

    Each metropolis preselects its suicide like an officer packs a capsule, for if a city lives by remembering, mein Leibnitz Herr, the opposite must also be true, ergo a city dies from forgetting, and such death is by the city s own hand, it turns it neglected bungalows to gallows and potholes its veins.Wasn t Leibnitz snowed in somewhere an

    Phonics as harmonics, myth as glossolalia A fractal inquiry into the melting pot that is LA The sort of multi layered narrative curation of sheer experience that is at once avant garde and a shoring up of the conventions of plot and novel and poem Oftentimes within the same sentence, even.This is a book for those who prefer their hyper atten

    I gave up on this book, and I m really sad about it It s 488 pages long I know Goodreads says it has over 600, but I double checked , I m halfway through, and I still have no sense of plot or direction, so all I keep thinking about are all the other books that I want to read The writing is BEAUTIFUL, but the alternating characters tend to be static in t
