I found it too cute and neat. There were things I liked in it, but it felt like an exercise or parody of something. Impressive how much he manages to compress into it, just leaves me cold in comparison to the others. A perfectly constructed little puzzle box.
It's your fourth favourite!

what i like about it is that Mike Atennae is clearly fictional, but that's not supposed to fool you. but what you might not realise is that the Cleveland review of books is also fictional and made up by Gus. no one from Cleveland has ever read a book.

I have inside knowledge regarding the methodology of this interview, but I will withhold it from the the general Dissensus public primarily out of respect to the author and secondarily out of sheer sadism.

given Atennae says the same things as Gus, in the same way as Gus, likes the same telly programmes and reads the same books
it's not that hard to figure out the methodology is it.

I suppose there is something vaguely complimentary about being recognized. Like how every blog has one loyal hate reader who knows your style and themes better than anyone but in the service of destroying it
