Stuart, have you read NEXT? That's another Texas stream-of-consciousness book. Great review, btw!

I have a bias against Texas, Dallas in particular. If I go stream of consciousness again, I think I need to pick another state. Broaden my horizons. Maybe, I dunno, Rhode Island?

Hahaha! You mean, you don't like the state that produced "W" and Santorum? Not exactly Leopold Bloom types, are they?

Texas and me don't get along. The list of bizarre things that have happened to me there is long. I think it was Woody Guthrie who said, "Marry a Texas girl. No matter what happens she's seen worse."

You made me chuckle. I started to lead into my review with your thought, " If you're a conservative war hawk or a Dallas Cowboys fan, I suggest that you stay away from this book. It will be too cynical for you." When I remembered how few of those people read literature, I went another way.

Thanks. It's probably true that conservative war hawks don't read many novels. But maybe there's a Dallas Cowboys fan or two in the stands with a book to read during those persistent and long TV timeouts.
