"I now want to explain these things to her but I know I never will, the most important one being: I never liked anyone and I'm afraid of people."

I loved the ominous feeling carried through out. As always, I connected with the starkness and the alienation that permeates BBE's books. If anything the conspicuous consumptions (leading to further sense of separation of one's self) of today's modern society is even more pronounced than it was in the 80's.

The only thing keeping me from a 5 star review rather than a 4star review is the sense that I was aware of while reading the entire book, but especially the last ten or so pages of the book was this being Dennis Cooper-lite (ala The Sluts, etc).
