The Condor

The Condor - Isa K. Loved it. This book is a lot like a demolition derby: fun to watch, things look worse than they are and everything banged up can be sorted out with a few whacks in the right place. Isa K's voice was hysterical--I'd read anything with this delicious helping of sarcasm and self-deprecation. Frickin' tickles me like nothing else. The characters were great. There were no goods guys and no bad guys--just a whole bunch of people trying to straggle through life the best they can while trying not to to wipeout completely. Everyone fucks up. Perfectly messy.Favorite quote: There can't be just one."The last thing I need is Stanley Kubrick directing my life. It's fucked up enough under my own direction.""There's a state of bliss that can be reached only by deliberately bringing your own worst fears into reality."
