Is it Eric Bogosian's fault if people want to read such stuff? To wallow in filth and ugliness vicariously? Of course not! This marketability of misery, this rage for "rage," has been around for a long time. It was the theme if Bogosian's own stage drama and film Talk Radio, at the climax of which his avatar, radio host Barry Champlain, dies for our cultural sins.
So where am I going with this review?
This is a "grunge novel." Specifically, it's a grunge novel for intellectual readers, replete with allusions to Baudelaire, Hesse, and painter Arthur Dove. It's chock full of snappy sentences and terse, well-crafted descriptions. It's a pretty good grunge novel, but that wasn't what I was hoping for.
