Sorrentino on autopilot, with less successful results. He completed three books within the space of two years, so the quality had to snag somewhere. His final two novels are A Strange Commonplace and The Abyss of Human Illusion.

I will get to them, uh, eventually. ::faints from exhaustion::

Beth I've bogged down on this one as well. I thought the idea was terrific, but it rapidly became a book to simply dip in and out of . . . unfortunately it's the only Sorrentino my library has.

MJ Nicholls A pity! Yes, it's one of his minor-minor works. He wrote so much before he died. He contracted cancer round about the publication of this book, and confronts his mortality in the posthumous Abyss of Human Illusion. Can't wait to read that.

MJ Nicholls Not that I'm a rubbernecker or anything. Just the personal/reflective/tragic content piques my interest. Ehm.
