I knew of it for decades but for some reason seemed always on the periphery of reading it. I downloaded a digital copy from a library site on whim, not expecting much. I read a couple of chapters in the middle and was surprised by the luxury of the language. I haven’t read anything poetic for a long time. The p600 waves were sweeping back and forth. It was a delight. I have never heard Steve mention it, perhaps he has thoughts.
Some of the negative reviews on the site are funny.
