XX. "Water Music" - T.C. Boyle
I'm an incredible Boyle fan, so it disturbed me that I wanted to kick the book after reading twenty pages. Recently, I read about these gin vs. beer cartoons (beer was depicted as hearty and healthy, while gin showed depravity and murderous insanity - gin has always done that to me, too). Boyle used nearly all of the information word for word. It made me wonder if reading widely will eventually create frustration for the addicted reader.
