is this a book by author you’ve told me about?
yes, Dhalgren, you should definitely check it out.
It’s weird, especially at the start when you’re still wondering what’s supposed to be real in-universe and what not, and it veers off into stream-of-consciousness style. But it is a very cool book.
There’s a lot about writing itself (not in a wanky writer-writes-on-writing way tho!), which you may appreciate. i’m not experienced with ~experimental~ (idk the right category) literary fiction or w/e at all, but i’m enjoying this a lot. like, It isn’t as…
masturbatory pretentious as a lot of purposely nontraditional or complex or whatever works tend to feel to me, despite being like 800 pages. also i didn’t detect any language word play bullshittery, so it’d absolutely work as a translation.
so like, super into it, check it out.
