What isn't generally known, however, but is clear to me, is that prior to his writing bender, he also, obviously, ingested, inhaled, and intook an asylumful of drugs before proceeding.
Through that prism, we now understand the results: An Ecclesiastical narrative gone horribly awry, in both the writer's brain and on the page. At no point during the reading did I have a real good idea what was going on. It was disjoined, and just plain bonkers. It was like being sideswiped by a fast-moving truck and having no idea what just hit you.
