Reading Matter

Not too sure about this, only a few chapters in...




the bad sex pulpitations are a bit of a yawn...still a few glimmers of genius keeping me turning the pages... must stop comparing it to those Golgotha piled metaphors of his past...



...this on the other hand has been a mind sizzler from the first paragraph... the poetry of existence, humble observations given wings.

Loki said...

the Nick Cave book was very disappointing, despite being set in an area I know well (geographical not psychosexual - well...) - just couldn't see where he was coming or going with it...

Cloudboy said...

yeah,know what yr mean Loki, there's so much scope but Cave spends the time happily blinkered to possiblity...

a parable in pointlessness?

it's sad but i just can't bring myself to finish Bunny M... glad his music still pulls the punches though
