“He never had a kid, and never owned a gun. He owned a lot of books, though, and kept buying new ones, and giving me those he thought were particularly well done. It was an ordeal for him to find this book or that one, so he could read some particularly magical passage aloud to me. Here’s why: His wife Aunt Raye, who was said to be artistic, arranged his library according to the size and color of the volumes, and stairstep style. So he might say of a collection of essays by his hero H. L. Mencken, “I think it was green, and about this high.”

Thanks to Max at the Vonnegut Library for the quote. They’re raising dough for their 2018 program, give up some.

To say there’s a glut of “The Girl” books would be an understatement. That being said let me also say I’ve not read any book quite like this nor have I ever or will ever again read a “The Girl” book even though this is pretty much as good as a book could possibly get.

It’s a Hollywood murder mystery period piece but is it set in 1930s Hollywood Babylon? Nope. It’s set in 1992 Baywatch Shittywood and it’s strangely deep and fugging hysterical.

I’ll be reading more from this series. If I can find them‎.

Well this is sure depressing. And such great writing‎ that seems wasted. Really like ok, shitty book you don’t wanna read spoiler his wife, his son, and his dad die. So he gets in a 1930s automobile to go on a trip and shit gets actually worse. And these are the parts that aren’t boring. It’s either depressing or boring. The whole time. But also the whole time incredibly beautiful and lyrical.

Bummer. I did a lot of skimming.
