The Era of Not Quite by Douglas Watson
Rate this book
Clear rating
Some interesting bits but most of it felt like scraps from writer's notebooks. Wish there was a common thread or theme uniting at least some of the stories.

“Every relationship is fundamentally a power struggle, and the individual in power is whoever likes the other person less.”
Chuck Klosterman, Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto

Chuck Klosterman
“But whenever I meet dynamic, nonretarded Americans, I notice that they all seem to share a single unifying characteristic: the inability to experience the kind of mind-blowing, transcendent romantic relationship they perceive to be a normal part of living. And someone needs to take the fall for this. So instead of blaming no one for this (which is kind of cowardly) or blaming everyone (which is kind of meaningless), I'm going to blame John Cusack.”
