liked it

I have a ton of affection for this book, but re-reading it 10 years later has made me realize just how embarrassingly purple the prose is, and how mawkish the whole thing comes off. I love Coney Island and am a sucker for stories from the heyday of Luna Park and Dreamland, so I gladly slog through, but it still feels like SNL doing a Tom Waits parody.
