Yair! Yair! After watching Douglas Sirk’s bizarre masterpiece “The Tarnished Angels” I sought out “Pylon”, the source for this weirdo extravaganza.
The dialogue in the book maintains that laughable “Showgirls” vibe in spades = “Yair! Why, they don’t have blood running through their veins, but crankcase oil, see?”, or “He was born on a parachute in an aircraft hangar, yair!!!”
I’m assured from the cover blurbs that William Faulkner is a “master” and a “genius”. That makes him almost as superhuman as the daring stunt pilots in his book! Yair!!!!
