i love denis johnson.

i am beginning to think that there's something wrong with me, however. some of my favorite authors blurb this book as a masterpiece, and seems like the majority of folks here at goodreads are unanimously hailing it as such.

however, i'm 100 pages in and i'm not only confused, but i'm not even sure i want to trudge on.

again, i am faulting the reader here. you think that you are mature enough of a reader, and that your knowledge of the world is mature enough that you can handle something like this, and it's a little disappointing to find out that either a) it's just not your bag, or b) you're somewhat out of sync with the literary minds of the day.

or adhd.
