Play It As It Lays can only be read as satire these days. Didion couldn't write a novel. The White Album and Slouching Toward Bethlehem is what I had in mind and her precious way of noticing things.

I'm still pissed of that the name Homer Simpson has become what it has. I like the show. But couldn't they leave that name alone?
