But nothing compares to Ed Pavlic's garble and confusion on every page of this book. I got a damn headache trying to read that mess. I love Donny and have everything he's ever recorded. I have been looking for anything written about him, with the understanding that yes, he was mentally challenged. Many brilliant people are.
I realize that the writing represents imagined conversations with Donny Hathaway, but if you're serious about reading this book, you will need Zoloft, a joint, and an interpreter. I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED WITH THE BOOK! Plus, I learned very little about this great man by reading Mr. Pavlic's book.
This is simply a great book. It belongs on the shelf next to Michael Ondaatje, Yusef Komunyakaa, Adrienne Rich, John Berger: the writers who are trying to make our world possible.
