I almost did not care to finish reading this book, due to the awkward false starts of the main character (heller). I stuck through it, and it was worth it. I think every writer knows the feeling of not being able to conjure up those creative wits that seemed so easy one time or another; and in Heller's last years he was only concerned with writing a book for the movies, and ended up giving us a window into the mind of an elderly author who believes his writing career is over.
