Typewriters, Bombs, Jellyfish: Essays

Typewriters, Bombs, Jellyfish: Essays - Tom McCarthy It was my hope that a book of essays covering writers the likes of Laurence Sterne, Franz Kafka, James Joyce, and Kathy Acker, as well as McCarthy's thoughts on Patty Hearst, David Lynch, and Sonic Youth would interest me to no end. But I was wrong. Rarely did I felt engaged, and all through the text a numbing affect came over me which I attributed to my own lack of intellectual prowess. If this collection was a work of genius, it was lost on me and can be added to my list of bad choices for 2017.
