    I suspect I'm not clever enough for it but you know I hear Dhalgren is very clever but similar to this I remembered while reading it I thought pockets of its description and arguments were interesting and highly original but the rest was bland and I'm always in a state of perpetual unease about who's going to sleep with whom and what I'm supposed to think of it even although I'm not engaged in the lives of any of the characters
