Meh. Linked "detective" stories that are really about language, writers, and writing. Yeah, yeah. It's interesting how badly this '80s cleverness wears 30 years down the line. Compared, particularly, to high modernism, which played far more challenging games with reality and fiction, and is still fresh going on 100.
