the one-note thing
was more directly in reference to mcsweeney's.
like i said, i didnt read more than one chap of his latest book, and i just couldnt get it. i think he's okay, but his style drives me nuts. that is surely purely subjective. and his first book isnt bad, but it's not all that (the first section is great, very inspired, and very original. the rest is blah mediocre).
