This thread contains the greatest novel you'll never read. But future generations will and get rich off it's prophesy.

Oh, well, when Fitzgerald died he thought he was a failure. The Great Gatsby gain a resurgence in popularity twenty years after his death. Now they censoring it and it's fallen out of favor.

He's in a Heaven so I doubt he cares.

I love the part when the security guard notices the criminal inside and gets verbally involved with him, never coming to a defense tactic like play possum. After all this is a wanted criminal, and this security guard is not described as armed. What fortitude, what nihilistic fervor that could drive the security guard to engage with said criminal, that his simple child like simplicity may disarm such a notorious escapee.


Such assumptions are difficult to accept on face value, and given the vast spaces occupied by these two paltry souls. the only explanation is the kind of no exit sort of atmosphere must have been generated in a night that seemed never come to terms with dawn.

Time and space not only transcended each other, but they contorted into some primal hope for a utopia which never could arrive.

All that has been realized in such persona dramatis like long journey into night, reading Céline and listening to am radio .

It was Dr Schlessinger, and she felt the vampiristically reach into her exsquisite, as if genetic could kiss the hand of eldridge cleaver.

Dr Schlessinger was in fact very tuned into her Jung, S she permeated through the deserted field next day, but east la recessed toward the tall great pines that brought forward Mann's magic mountain.


She studied with him or under him I don't know which, and then withdrew this presence as quickly as she first extended it


Course yes. Great Gatsby stole hurt is wife's talent, maybe fed on it, unbashadly, for art only imitates that life, which life knows she can't produce a negative copy . once done, it's irriversible through new domains of cause and effect.

We are all little Jung boys and girls enchanted by all and sadly loose it dramatically and tragically , projecting a humangous constructed simulated gulliver maxiture, as if the many kids growing up somehow unify them selves into one , The Romantic Idiom nothing but the cumulative loss
of all these tokes into an invisible spirit.

Pulp's plot line merits recording: a shadowy figure called Lady Death hires Nick Belane ("Mr. Slow Death" to his bookie) to find a guy named Celine--yes, that Celine. Ms. Death tells Belane that Celine's been hanging around Red's bookstore . . . asking about Faulkner, McCullers [and] Charles Manson." Bukowski's Celine is a paranoid boor and gets the novel's best lines: on Thomas Mann, "This fellow has a problem . . . he considers boredom an Art"; on the New Yorker, "One problem there . . . Celine meets his maker soon after, again, leaving Belane free to pursue other related cases, which include space-alien bombshells, whores, bars, and red sparrows. As might be expected, Bukowski's "pulp" women are

As the novel muses upon death, salient and somewhat predictable reflections on Identity appear, but they are neither winded nor sour with age. Bukowski's lines are "Sartre" filtered through a pulp vein: "Was Celine Celine or was he somebody else? Sometimes I felt that I didn't even know who 1 was. All right, I'm Nicky Belane. But check this. Somebody could yell out 'Hey, . . . Harry Martel!' and I'd most likely answer, 'Yeah, what is it?' I mean, I could be anybody, what does it matter?"

Who me? You must've been thinki'n of another, since no boredom can reach an internal tapestry.


Hence the problem is not boredom itself but the boringness of being bored.

Call it writin' block to make it more palatable.

No not you at all. I actually tried to evaluate boredom and entertainment soaked culture in American Captive. So, if anyone, me.

I don't see boredom as much of bad thing as lot of other people do. Constantly being entertained however, can lead to a sort of head in the sand outlook.

If you will remember how an American Captive is recognized by fellow Americans, by repeating character catchphrases and movie trivia, then you will have captured my point.

Admiration due to such intention. What realization follows is reminiscent to goody waiting for something to happen. Something

In fact the only thing to await is the wait itself. If that becomes too heavy, Godot will most assuredly pray. For You. That's it. That has got to be it.

Follow the heart, it will lead to the Soul., which is a comfort in captivity.

The captivity in stead, will turn , and become a source of Captivation!
