it was ok
bookshelves: read-2018

Four stars because I tend to enjoy stream-of-consciousness writing and I think being able to accurately reflect the current zeitgeist takes an admirable detachment. Minus one star because I didn't get the whole Kathy Acker thing and there was no plot or really any reward? Minus another star because the whole thing read as very smug throughout, and I'm pretty sure it would have been banished to the slush pile if it hadn't been written by Olivia Laing.

Vanessa Will be interested to see whether I enjoy this or not, thanks for sharing! Do you happen to have a copy I could borrow? 😉

I don't, sorry! I zipped through it while staying at my parents' (Mum had had it on the library waiting list for four months!)
