RE: RARA-AVIS: Jason Starr's new one: FAKE I.D.

Date: 19 Nov 2000

perhaps this isn't very important, but i totally disagree about the end of NOTHING PERSONAL. i think it's *immediately* clear how utterly horrible the consequences of the book's events have been. i was actually very angry when i finished that book, because i thought the deeply disturbing ending had nothing whatsoever to do with the tone of the book as a whole-- it seemed somehow like a low blow, to end a generally aggressively pathetic/funny book on such a note. i felt strongly enough about it to not want to read any more jason starr. again, though, it's just my opinion.
