I knew it was based on personal experience, but other than that, no.

I tried "We", but it was too turgid and slow. Needed more tits.
I read the first few chapters of Cancer Ward a couple of years ago, but didn't finish it. Mobile phones have destroyed my attention span, but I should finish it. It seemed like an excellent novel.
It is, but the only thing I've ever read that was more depressing was "The Road".
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Anyone ever read The Bickford Fuse, by Andrei Kurkov? It's tough going at times, and weird, but good. I think.

My favourite Kurkov book is probably Death and The Penguin, or maybe The Case of the General's Thumb.
