really liked it
bookshelves: ya

Had the brilliant idea to read this after Less Then Zero.

It's strange being inside the mind of someone who actually enjoys LA, but well c'set la via.

Weetzie Bat has always been a strange phenomenon for me. I like them but I don't know why. Normally it would be a detriment if a book was nothing more then a series of barely coherent vignettes loosely strung together sustained only by hipster dialogue, John Waters style done by someone other then John Waters, made up slang, genies, Audrey Tatou levels of tweeness, and characters who are defined by how WC Fieldish their names are, but in this case all these all are positive boons.

Anyway I don't fight it I just roll with it, and the reread has finally inspired me to track down the sequels...Albeit not soon.

Best read while stoned out of ones mind and listening to Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, and a bit of Tom Petty for variety.
