One of my friends has a portable ashtray that he takes with him everywhere, I'm thinking I should get one myself.Linebaugh is a a good person, we all knew he was a cool dude but I keep thinking about how he went out of his way to find a trashcan for his cigarette butt. A man of principles & honor.
i've meant to check out Vollmann and Gas but those kind of authors i find as much as their hailed as brilliant its like nobody has any idea whats a good book to start with themLinebaugh is a certified man of literature... Not just one of those DFW DeLillo Kerouac Pynchon entry level guys. He's got Vollmann, Gass (The Tunnel!), Gaddis. He's got The Golden Bough (not well known in America!). He's got smatterings of French theory (Derrida, Foucault). He does appear to have the Gravity's Rainbow "companion" rather than GR proper, idling next to a Brene Brown paperback, but any man has his lapses
