Less lucky as time goes by.

In fairness, if I'd read this back in the sixties, when I was first encountering "modern" from Salinger, to Joyce, to Kerouac, I would have been more impressed. I "get it", but I suspect it's a book that hasn't aged too well.
One word of caution, do avoid the 1957 movie version at all costs.
