so it goes.

Incidentally, that Joyce person, as a bastion of liberalist "culture," really deserves to be slapped around a bit.

Yes, yes, and yes.

I know whereof I speak.

If you mean James Joyce, the so-called "writer", then I heartily agree.

Get some taste, people, Joyce is horrific! His is a medical condition, graphomania. People like him need to get professional medical help.

Peace and much love...

I guess Nabokov was just blowing smoke, so to speak.

New poll option: The Violent Bear Harry Potter Away. The best part is that it works quite well in either the original or modified forms.

Haven't had a reason to. From what I heard, there's nothing worthwhile there anyways, so I decided to save my time. Though maybe I'm just listening to wrong advice.

"A Farewell to Harry" seems to be losing badly, with a staggering zero votes total so far.

That is very comforting, to me, at least -- Hemingway is the most overrated author of the century, if not the world.

Peace and much love...

He is currently beating Muriel Sparks, which isn't surprising considering he was a misogynist .

Potter in the Rye. Summary: Harry Potter, young abused magician, discovers his powers and uses them to destroy his repressive family and their friends. Of course, that doesn't really do the book justic- its dialectic approach to the issues just cannot be dealt with here. I wholeheartedly encourage every Adequacy reader to pick this wonderful work up at least once.

    I would hardly call anything written by J.K. Rand "literature" in anything beyond the basest sense of the word.
