RARA-AVIS: Heirs of Selby

Can I take an opportunity to suggest another would-be hipster, who touches on hb at least as much as the similarly untalented but less prolific B. E. Ellis, William Vollman? I can understand, if not yet agree with, the arguments of those who find little value in Don DeLillo's writings, another edge-of-hb guy; I can find no reason to do other than revile Vollman's work. Even when he has a promising topic or passage, he will find a way to flaunt his lack of talent and taste soon enough.

Otherwise, there's always Avallone. TM
