Whoa....I didn't say boring, but difficult.
And I tried more than once on several of those books.
But then again also have trouble finishing Dick's stuff, too.
(Pynchon is perhaps more skilled as a writer, while Dick is a rainbird sprinkler of cool ideas.)
And there is also that weird rut (happens with movies and music also) when you feel sick or bad or aren't in the right frame to accurately experience a book---and that sometimes cause a ripple block to future attempts.
And Tom......Another Roadside Attraction up to, hmmm, Jitterbug Perfume.
I'm gonna end up giving him his own thread but are any of you familiar with William Kotzwinkle
Many have maybe heard of The Fan Man
or Walter The Farting Dog
, but he is SO much more.....
Brilliant, a word wizard.
