Has anyone else read Lint by Steve Aylett, yet? It's brilliant stuff--literary parody/satire, gonzo and yet, in some strange way, oddly poignant in the way Lint struggles against his own peculiar eccentricity/awfulness.
The skewering of pulp fiction is brilliant, as it's casual collisions with the reality of various literary eras.

I haven't read LINT, but I have read other works by Aylett. They make my head hurt. In a good sort of way.

Yeah, they do. But this one isn't like that. I mean, I like that effect, but this one is different.
Usually my head hurts because you're cuffing my ear.

Yes, I've read it. A wonderful book! I was very impressed. I particularly like his peculiar Magic Bullet Theory.

Isn't it, though? It's a very loving send-up, in a way. The Magic Bullet Theory is great.

For reasons & by methods i can't explain, there's now a reprint of Jeff Lint's strangely nightmarish CATERER COMIC available! - details here -
