Delightfully off-kilter. A collection of bitingly satirical social commentary thoughts loosely strung together with a plot that is intentionally splintered. Crude and sad and insightful.
"I think I am trying to clear my head of all the junk in there. . . .
"I think I am trying to make my head as empty as it was when I was born onto this damaged planet fifty years ago.
"I suspect that this is something most white Americans, and nonwhite Americans who imitate white Americans, should do. The things other people have put into my head, at any rate, do not fit together nicely, are often useless and ugly, are out of proportion with one another, are out of proportion with life as it really is outside my head. . . .
"So this book is a sidewalk strewn with junk, trash which I throw over my shoulders as I travel."
That junk just happens to be highly relevant to current circumstances, nearly 50 years after first written. We need to continue the efforts to empty our heads.
