I put to stars only because I had to read it quickly for class and could not swim to the bottom of it, which I hope some time later. Read full review

User Review  - Melissa - Goodreads

I read this book multiple times in undergrad and liked it less and less each time. While I can appreciate the "moo cow baa laa laa" movement into modernism & stream-of-consciousness on an academic level, I wasn't moved by any of it. Read full review
