    One thought on “Toughlahoma”

    1. Author "perverts the word as the word perverts the world," wielding "letters that are a distortion of language as language is a distortion of reality." A system of non-symbols in a non-place signifying not-nothing if you want it to mean something, a game author undermines throughout. It's really a convalescent hungover daydream the author had in Applebee's probably. I'm probably too impatient for anti-fiction these days, but maybe you're young, prematurely tired of old standard character, plot, [...]

    2. Save yourself the time, read literary theory instead. Clearly written in order to be taught in his creative writing class. Heavy handed, redundant and pandering. Sadly overrated.

    3. Don't read this if you're easily scandalized. Do read this if you enjoy word play and form play. This is the bible meets HBO meets the worst business meeting you've ever been a part of. It continually surprised me and made me laugh and made me terrified for what will become of us.
