About fifty pages in, I wondered if this book was secretly brilliant, and I just wasn't clever enough to get it. But after reading every tortuous page, I've decided I don't care - I don't think it's brilliant. There's no plot, and I'm not even sure there are characters. The highlight - and I'll use that term very loosely - was the apparent interview with Dorfman hiding around page 250, in which Dorfman notes that this book was becoming "a bunch of illegible garbage" (his words, not mine - see page 249). Thanks for still deciding to publish it. Do yourself a favor and skip this anomaly in Dorfman's repertoire.
