over some reviewers heads,
This review is from: Paint It Black: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
Josie's ironic stream of conciousness shows her recent creash course in high culture...brill how its interwoven with punk scene anti intellectuallism and brutal reality. Meredith as narcissistic personality is classic and utterly believeable and terrifying. Son is narcissist in training but doesnt have the heart for it. Ming theme redolant...not repititious. Poetic as Transsiberian. You dont need to get all the allusions but it helps.
...for the cognoscenti
