If the paper had torn while I was awake I could have taped it but if the tearing of a dream paper tore me then I was torn forever I could scream for my sister Mimi and she might or might not hear me and come in to find out what was wrong and if she did come my fear might be somewhat allayed but nothing she or anyone else said could ever make that piece of paper whole again because it had torn in a world where we were powerless While in the beautiful well ordered lie of our everyday lives there was almost nothing we cold not do We commanded the flowers to grow and within the or less predictable limitations of soil and weather they obeyed our commands We turned wool into rugs and sweaters crab apples into jelly wood into fire We put screens on the windows and summer came; we replaced them with storm windows to permit the snow to fall Our lives denied our nightmares which was why I stayed awake for all but four or five hours each nightWhat an amazing way to think I enjoy causation vs correlation conundrums as well as the powers of neurotic thinking I also sleep 8 9 hours a night so what does that say about me? This book was beyond cynical The narrator was unlikable and the whole cast of characters were dysfunctional and unsympathetic Much of the dialog was amusing which is why I'm giving this two stars instead of one At the same time it bothered me that all the wit was so caustic often downright abusive Not to mention the actual abusive behaviors depicted or alluded to in the story There seemed to be something a little anti intellectual about the focus on exposing how hypocritical and pretentious these people are these Hollywood people these left wing anti war writer types this book was ripped off by Running with Scissors Another gem plucked from the pages of Nancy Pearl's Book Lust series
