Marginally psychotic balderdash?
am 5. März 1999
At the risk of sounding like a literary philistine, I must say that I didn't get it. There was some really neat stuff, but it rambled on and on and I didn't catch the connections. Is this one of those works where you need to be warmed up on some good acid, or maybe a devotee of obscure occultist literature? Maybe my problem is that I've been clean and sober over ten years, or maybe because I have a Ph.D. in psychology. I don't know. I plan to read Illuminatus and see if I can make sense of that one. I think I gave it a good run for the money--I read the entire first part basically in one sitting while waiting for my wife to shop for clothes, partly in a Starbuck's coffee shop and partly on a sunny patio outside a Middle Eastern deli during an unseasonably warm day in January, in Austin, Texas. I usually make marginal notes in the books I read, and in this one all I could find, scribbled inside the front cover, was: Marginally psychotic balderdash?
