Carol. "I don't know if this novel proves that the drugs were better in the 1970s, or that the anti-psychotic meds were worse."

Priceless review. The sections he quoted really do sound like a schizophrenic rant.

Miriam Does it seem weird of me to say this seems like your kinda thing?

Also, my library has zero of his books but in searching I discovered that there is an author named Woodie King.

mark monday it says that you are quite familiar with my tastes!

Woodie King is an awesome name.

my sister's father-in-law was known, without irony, as "Poppa Woody", a nickname drawn from his last name of "Woodford". it always took me and my family aback when kids would run into the room exclaiming "Poppa Woody, Poppa Woody!" and then jump onto his lap. my BIL's side of the family are fairly uptight, humorless WASPs so the pun was lost on them.

the sad-funny-ironic part of the Poppa Woody story is his death. it was due to a heart failure from his usage of Viagra. he literally passed away in a hot tub after a vigorous bout of lovemaking with his wife. his wife said the last few years of their marriage were their best since the first few years of their marraige, so I don't really consider this a tragic tale.

Miriam That sounds like a relatively smooth way to go.

(In keeping with the above punnage: out with a bang!)
