This review is from: Bright Shiny Morning (Paperback)
Four separate stories mashed together, and surrounded by facts and figures about Los Angeles. Entertaining, fast-moving and realistic. He's a good writer.

3.0 out of 5 stars soccer rush job, 3 Feb. 2014

This book reads as if it's been hacked together at a very fast pace to be published in time for the Christmas market, and the author, whoever she is, doesn't have the literary skills to pull this off. That said, the meditations on depression stand out in more ways than one.

5.0 out of 5 stars cultural criticism meets low-brow pulp, 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chatty film, music and art criticism with an amusing plot surrounding it to string it into some kind of narrative. Funny, thought-provoking, mischievous. A success.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beat blues, 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not his best book but the quality of the prose is sometimes mind-blowing and the portraits of Burroughs and Snyder at the end of their lives are intensely moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars genius at work, 3 Feb. 2014

Two CDs of singles and classic album tracks through a long career - the variety, as well as the number of essential songs which didn't make the cut, shows how prolific and essential an artist Nikki was. Four further CDs of rare and previously unreleased stuff of interest to true fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars psychopolitics, 3 Feb. 2014

I didn't agree with all of it: his hatchet job on Laing is based on a selective and partisan reading, though his trashing of Szasz is spot on. But I found the book very thought-provoking and it helped me to clarify some of my own positions.
