Weinstein's stated goals attract me but his expressed views distract me. And i can't seem to get past the Proust. Maybe there'll be a meeting of our minds some other time, Professor Dubya.
I've only read the section on Ulysses, but I loved it so much that I purchased a copy of it for my own library. I'm sure it will be an immense help when I attempt to tackle Proust and Faulkner later this year.
