    It has also been said that it doesn't borrow words from other languages, it follows them into dark alleys, knocks them down, and goes through their pockets for loose grammar.

    I don't know what the story is with him. I tried reading one of his books and it hurt my head by page 2.

    Same thing with Catch -22 by Joseph Heller. (A review of Catch-22 said that it wasn't written, so much as shouted onto paper. Very true.)

    Is it "The Moneymakers"? Moneylenders? something like that.
    Quite enjoyed that. Sardonic look at the economy.

    It's about as fantasy as the monetary system
    It was to the tune of elves making coins and such.

    I had a few goes at reading catch 22. The prose wasn't for me but the mini series on tvnz on demand is gold.

    Watched the movie in the early 70’s and at the end of the movie walked out thinking ‘what the hell was that about?’

    Took me a few goes too. All those Booker Prize etc major award books are bloody hard to read, something in the water those major literary types drink I guess.

    Crackup, I've had saner shit shouted at me by people that were too pissed to stand up under their own steam. Even better, people bitching about politics free anything, until the tahr get on the agenda - then the cunts can't yell loud enough to mobilise.
