hmmmmm kane!

ive read the "play ethic" and went to his extract reading at borders book shop glasgow.he is full of self important mince.he try's to be intellectual.everything he writes screams bourgeois pseud.
i know the maxim goes birds of a feather etc but your good momus.
its great to read good reviews (i am a fellow artist) but careful.remember where it got ed ball in the brilliant "man of letters" doc/movie. flattery can corrode both flatterer and flattered.

ps your books great by the way.

Re: hmmmmm kane!

congrats!!!

I have become quite curious as well... I'll pick up a copy. I tend to enjoy twisted surreal tales...

taken from the review...
'he's one of the most challengingly brilliant Scottish minds of the last twenty years.'

Thats almost a diss... from Scotland in the last 20 years? how many people are in that pool of possible candidates????

I'm sure you're more important then that... come on now...

Do you know of Peter sotos?
ah, nothing similar perhaps... but he deals w taboos in the extreme sense, and also, which I find most interesting is his structuring of the text (He is perhaps an example of uneven genius)...
One of his books he has a couple of blank pages in the middle of the book... meant for space/time to contemplate... which I found to be quite remarkable.
