The Year of the Interrogatory Paragraph So what happened? The former is a much more repulsive manipulation of the reader than the latter, and may be the root of all the silly ‘you just don’t get it’ rubbish. Madam Psychosis probably got to me the most.

L was fascinated by the fundamental theme of addiction, of entertainment, of attempting to lose yourself in something else. LLO first published February 1st I finished reading approximately five hours ago. The follies of living in a culture of delusion.

If you play a song well the audience should get lost in the music and it should take inifnita a second or two to come out of that to applaud for you at the end of a song. A couple months ago I would have thought nothing more than that’s pretty cool, expensive, but cool. I think a lot of this could have been solved by making the definitional endnotes footnotes on the pages.

The story neatly juxtaposes a group of boys at an elite tennis academy who turn to drugs as an alternative to the Spartan lifestyle and oppressive purposiveness of their academy, and a halfway house where a group of addicts try to flee drug abuse through a stringently structured and dogmatic AA program.
