Lord of the Barnyard is a total romp of a novel, but it also managed to be tight and focused. My problem with Skirt and the Fiddle is that it isn't tight and focused. It's downright sloppy. The focus is, to me, what gave Egolf his edge when I first read him, and it was what separated him from the low-grade, adolescent rants of Chuck Palahniuk and Tom Robbins. This felt like a step backward. Hmm.
