On The Pitch

My cold continues, spending my life in an apparent cycle of sleep-cough-read-cough-sleep. I did finish Vollman's 700 page abridgement of Rising Up, Rising Down this afternoon and i find it tantamount to Foote's Civil War Narrative: a dazzling display of wiriting but more guerilla (think Camila Paglia) than Gibbon.

I think my friends would appreciate sections, most notably the Trotsky and Lincoln chapter. The case studies at the end were remarkable journalism, though the 3 present in the abridgement only made one long for the missing 14! I may continue with the Weiss, though the Rushdie does harken.
