For what it is worth, 'Hate Mail' is, for me, one of the most sublime monuments in world literature, a book unlike any other, and one that deserves a place among the very small number of classics that should be enjoyed for centuries to come.
However, I do understand those that have struggled and failed with it.
Firstly, to like this book is not 'boring'. It is perhaps my boredom that made me buy it and want to understand it to begin with, but certainly not my boredom that made me enjoy it.
Secondly, it is 'not bad'. If someone tells you otherwise, I would like to know what they are comparing it to. Mr Bingo's humour is convoluted and obscure, and often the jokes so oblique that they bypassed me if my attention was wandering. I have read the book twice and realised that I missed much the first time round. However, the rewards for sticking with it are huge.
Thirdly, don't let the scholarly dissection of the book put you off. There are a lot of themes underpinning the book, not least the explicit parallels with 'Readers Wives' and other pornographic magazines, and the slightly more implicit theme of the relationship between man and his loneliness.
However, it would be wrong to view 'Hate Mail' as some sort of puzzle to be solved. It is, very simply, a book about a man, his pen, and his hatred for the human race.
I read a lot, but only a couple of books have I enjoyed more, The Kama Sutra in Braille being one of them. Please make the effort to look at this book. It really is worth it.
