  5. Loved the street smart reportage cum fiction parts a blast of surprising grit, candour and pulsing realism all too rare in this navelgazing era The White Knights and Ladies and Red Lights is rich in powerful, electrifying vignettes as Vollmann restricts his prose to a splendidly unshowy, detached and oddly empathetic voice Unfortunately, what follows failed to provoke any reaction from me other than befuddlement and boredom one cod Talmudic story, written in a zanily biblical style, and on Loved the street smart reportage cum fiction parts a blast of surprising grit, candour and pulsing realism all too rare in this navelgazing era The White Knights and Ladies and Red Lights is rich in powerful, electrifying vignettes as Vollmann restricts his prose to a splendidly unshowy, detached and oddly empathetic voice Unfortunately, what follows failed to provoke any reaction from me other than befuddlement and boredom one cod Talmudic story, written in a zanily biblical style, and one mind numbing historical tale about a Chinese Thug gang were endured in the hope of finer things The awkward romance stories about frolicking yuppies, especially Yellow Rose, are precisely the sort of late eighties all smart and rich young people are fascinating efforts that Goodreads users rightly treat with contempt, although as stories they are mildly entertaining But the onslaught of The Blue Yonder, a nigh un...
