review:
This is a great book. Laugh-out-loud funny, dark, profound. Poetic and snarky and satiric and brilliant. Certainly Lipsyte got better after this first novel. Homeland and The Ask are better. But if you're a fan and a completist, definitely read this.

The drawbacks are that Lipsyte is one of those authors that is all about style rather than realism. His books are bit like Aaron Sorkin's scripts. Nobody really talks that way, but, but it's so good that you don't care. Except you wouldn't want to read only this kind of thing. It's like poetry, rather than a story you can believe in. And that's fine.

review:
I like this but it was pretty brutal. Kind of like a 70s version of Cormac McCarthy. Lots of senseless pointless violence, graphic sex, racism, misogyny. But there is a deeper thread somewhere. Southern redneck ex football player jock has an existential crisis in the midst of A bachanalian redneck mega party.

Igloo Martian live outside of 191 Toole, Tucson, 2017 04 06

This clip starts not quite at the beginning of the perforance, in which Igloo was banging a big piece of plastic (looked kind of like a slide from a kids playground) on the pavement out in the parking lot. This happened as part of the Tucson Noise Symposium, during the show inside the venue.
