Earlier this year, Lin wrote an article on the future of the novel for The New York Observer where he elaborated his ideas relating to the division between noumenon and phenomenon and how this relates to literature. The dumbest book ever. Why would anyone think that? I had such high hopes, and it was awful.
The characters in Eeeee Eee Eeeee– humans, bears, dolphins, hamsters, an alien, and the President of the United States– are frequently funny and spontaneous, as well as prone to teleportation and sudden bursts of cartoonish ultraviolence if only in their own heads. Elijah Wood and Sean Penn come to mind, but there are others.
Return to our discussion of privilege.
At some point dolphins beat Elijah Wood to death. Add some dolphins and maybe a bear. This book is definitely worth reading.
