First 10 pages wow So inventive and avant gardeNext 30 pages hm this isn t really all that funny and is kind of just as trashy as the stuff it s supposed to "BE SPOOFINGREST OF BOOK WTF GORE "spoofingRest of book WTF Gore We re supposed to think it s funny that a female cop systematically rapes immigrant Mexicans and ltra stereotyped black men chanting give me your okra and prunes And then the immigrants gang rape her as a revenge but she doesn t really mind because she s a good sport The Night Stalker (Robert Hunter, until they try to rip herp with a knife Then she screams and the male cop comes and rescues her but he s so turned on he makes her play dominatrix and handcuff him and almost have sex with him just seconds after the Mexican rapistattacker gang have escaped and she s you know bloodied and traumatised but she just flips her hair and plays along Ha ha right And meanwhile sadly the other story lines are just boring Overall nothing is funny or outrageous except all of the funny funny raping because the world this book takes place in has no rules so there are no transgressions Anything can happen for no real good reason The police chief moves a push pin and a nonsensical law of physics is inventedinvoked to explain why this in turn causes the space ship it represents to move And the framing conceit about characters moving between novels and media which could have been really cool is too sloppily applied to have any meaning It s like a high school free writing exercise or a drug fueled rant about 1970s culture that somehow morphs into Gore Vidal getting his rocks off to sick racistsexist fantasies because he can in a supposed satire He s supposed to spoofing trash but mainly he s just glorifying and enhancing it in a really haphazard non seuiter way I really hated it A lot And had to stop after hated it A lot And had to stop after 100 pages it was literally making me ill Which is too bad becuase the synopsis was so intriguing SIGH This book is completely twisted and fabulous Just when you think it can t get any stranger it does the re. Perhaps Vidal's most outrageous novel this is an indescribable fantasy purportedly set in the city of Duluth which however is near the Mexican border involving a tv show also named Duluth a parody of Dallas a spaceship that has landed nearby the antics of a policewoman Darlene Ecks much else A wild spoof of absolutely everything so.

That when finally Napoleon and she are together again in one another s arms this will be a Napoleon never before revealed in a true fiction Picture a TALL MUSCULAR MAN WITH FLASHING GRAY muscular man with flashing gray eyes beneath black brows Only inveterate aesthetes read thick esoteric and incomprehensible books but all the normal people enjoy fizzy belles lettres This is the most entertaining book that I have read for yearsWho will be

new mayor DuluthWhat s inside the alien space ship that has landed in the cityWho is Big JohnAnd will Chloris Craig the author who cannot read or write ever discover who killed Betty GrableAnd whose baby is Darlene Eck carryingCan the Marchioness of Skye get the secret plans which she has stolen to Napoleon in MoscowThese and many other important estions can only be answered by reading Gore Vidal s eccentric DuluthThe sub plots that criss cross and interweave often overlapping and merging are brilliantly original The characters who even when dead reappear in different guises are well portrayed and behave outrageouslyVidal s humour is vibrant radioactive penetrating and cuttingThis is a book that I cannot recommend highly enough Hated this than I ve hated anything I ve ever read Ick I won t even delve into how absurdly offensive nearly every page of this novel is as I m sure it was entirely intentional I gather this was supposed to be fraught with highly amusing scathing commentary on the excesses of the 1980 s but either I was too young back then to fully get in on the joke or it s so obtuse that only the author knows then to fully get in on the joke or it s so obtuse that only the author knows s there I hate this particular genre of postmodern fiction the perverse incoherent driveling of dirty old men and I probably wouldn t have started this had I known that s what it was going to be At least Vidal is a better writer than say a Nicholson Baker so there was a layer of candy coating over this crap Maybe this shocked and scandalized the literary aesthetes of 30 years ago but today it merely resembles bathroom wall scrawl. Atesman Vidal belongs to that group of writers of our time who precisely because they have always kept their eyes open to the disorders distortions of our age have chosen irony humor comedy in other words the whole range of literary instruments belonging to the niverse of the laugh as their means of settling accounts Italo Calvino. ,
