it was amazing
Recommended for: everyone unafraid of a little dense prose
Read in November, 2006

If V. Woolf had

a) grown up within sight of the Coastal Range, and
b) enormous, swinging testes,

then this book would be sold in a 3-pack with "Mrs Dalloway" and "The Waves" today. It's such literatoor, but it's so masculine and so blue-collar also. God I love it. The beautiful, funny slang; the creepy, right-on descriptions of the menacing landscape... It's got man vs. land and man vs. man. Who could ask for anything more?

Catherine Meng Thank you AnnaRebecca. As a big fan of Woolf & Sometimes A Great Notion I am entralled by the association I never saw before.
