Dilbert as prose? What's not to like?
on 22 January 2017
A sustained cry of rage and hatred for his characters that I find oddly invigorating in the middle of the night. There's a gleam of humour on the bottom third of page 86 - but dark, dark. I'd already read Ed Park's much shorter, superficially similar but tender and surreal Personal Days, published the following year. That also deals in schadenfreude, but why can I read THAT again and again with pleasure? Because THOSE characters still hope - there's poetry in their soul. But hey, in the Trump/Brexit era maybe hope is inappropriate. The descriptive para occupying half of page 88 is quite tasty.
