How I miss Heller when I read Roth.
Roth: Child of Heller.
Well, we've seen at least four things in that article: First, Wikipedia is true to the Confederacy of Dunces. Second, Princeton is true to the Confederacy of Dunces. Third, the Metropolis Literary Elite is true to the Confederacy of Dunces. Fourth, in the Confederacy of Dunces only the blind may be King.
I always thought spook is a colloquial word for spy, and spooky having to do with ghosts or something. I had no idea it could have other meanings. At any rate, chilly story, this Roth tale. Haven't heard of it before, but now I think I'll try to see the movie. You guys saw it?
No. I never even heard of the movie. Only peripherally heard of the book. Once tried to read "Portnoy's Complaint", and after about 16 pages had decided it was unreadable, and as useless in the reading, as "The Hobbit". Never touched his junk again. But now I am thinking I was misled by sample bias.
I read through Portnoy, having found the innard-fucking point unique and hilarious. Then it deteriorated.Fourth, in the Confederacy of Dunces only the blind may be King.That's us.
