But when I finally received it it felt like raw gold in my hands.

Several of them are top favorites of mine. Curb Dance Riotz Korine perfectly presents “a novel setting about the bastard wisher” with a pure, refined combination of pulchritude and putridity. I was reading James Franco’s “Actor’s Anonymous” at the same time and this book has a tone that Franco’s strives for and Franco totally missed the mark.

He was a tall, slender man in the darkest of coats, which made him appear like a shadow with a leathery head.

It’s like Naked Lunch in that sense. He tries to make art, and at times he succeeds, but the entirety of his niche is the presentation of situational dysfunction relying on the sensibilities of the reader. Even though this book seems random and without direction, this book has many red threads of commonality running through it. There’s nothing coherent in here, it’s nonsense with bits of beautiful humanity or bits of beautiful prose the two don’t really interact.

Feb 13, Liz rated riofs really liked it Shelves: Or perhaps I’m too simple minded to under I am a big fan of Korine’s films. There are disjointed lists, fake letters from Tupac, a series of suicide notes, and all sorts other unexpected goodies. Korine reinvents the novel in this highly experimental montage of scenes that seem both real raxe surreal rots the same time. Be the first to ask a question about A Crackup at the Race Riots. I love a good finger fit.


It reflects Korine’s indifference with being conventional just by how it’s put together, yet it is most likely on purpose because he has that same collage-esque quality he uses to create his films. And I’ll probably have completely contradictory opinions on it all tomorrow.
