when I finally tracked down a copy of Angels a few summers back I didn't have the reaction to it that I expected after hearing such high praise.
I actually had this same reaction when I re-read it, but it still had a huge impact on me the first time around. We sometimes leave behind the joys of our youth, to borrow fromthe psalm. Christ, I used to LOVE John Hawkes and now find him insufferable except in very very very small doses.
Thanks for the Lethem recommendation. Another book I should have thought of.
