there is a strict code of conduct on dissensus whereby no one pays any attention to any other members extra cirricular activities. it's always upset me but that's the way it is. if it was up to me shameless mutual boosterism would be a condition of membershipI have read Light by Edmund Davie but no-one seems keen to discuss it sadly.
Reading John Hawke’s second novel, the purgatorial western The Beetle Leg, is like being a small child awake during the night, staring in horror at some formless dark beast of the imagination that lurks within the shadows of their room. The plot, notorious for its obtuseness and the stunning surrealism which furthers the difficulty of finding a handhold from which to cling, churns forward with growing dread and silent monstrosities.
Not overtly. There's a lot of description of natural beauty interspersed with urban waste and litter, some death, but handled very lightly, and a really absurd flight of fancy about halfway through that made me laugh out loud. Its kinda dispassionately listless in a very artful way, rings very true to life without being overly sentimental or morose.Is it depressing or melancholic? Not sure I'm in the mood for that kind of gear just now.
Postman brought me a book called The Beetle Leg by John Hawkes a couple of days ago, I ordered it if after a dissensus discussion. Looks pretty interesting anyway, can't wait to start. Depressingly appears to be an ex-library book, how is that those come up for sale?
I should probably clarify that Finnegan's an award-winning journalist who's covered a bunch of other stuff and not just a random surfer who's written a book about surfing.That's because surfers are the biggest dullards in the world. I really related to Tarantino when he was talking about Big Wednesday and said, "I grew up around surfers. Surfers are jerks. Surfers don't deserve this movie."
