Fox You and your postmodernism!


Sean You know me: I'm a sucker for aesthetics, and this book was the Holy Grail of contemporary—yet uncontrived—experimentation.


message 3: by Fox (new) - rated it 3 stars

Fox A few of the stories just fell flat for me. I do have to agree it didn't come off as contrived, save for the Jules interview in my opinion. I adored the way Egan described music in it... THAT moved me thoroughly.
