    PDF/EPUB Nog eBook õ ↠ airdomains.co Nog PDF/EPUBA kind of drug haze western Nog follows a man with only a few closely guarded and regularly re constructed memories as he wanders 60s California and the south west with little purpose or direction While we're privy to his inner most thoughts they don't ammount to much mostly a kind of aphasic babble on his own existence linked to seemingly completely arbitrary courses of action A lot of what is uniue in the prose and construction here turns up again in Wurlitzer's next two novels but whereas those each construct a compelling context for his prose idiosyncrasies this has neither the urgent intensity of uake nor the terminal minimalism of Flats Though this is the novel that touted by Pynchon and leaving the deepest cult mark it feels like a test run of tools that would only become meaningful later Sure there's meaning here too I'm sure and the introd

    PDF/EPUB Nog eBook õ ↠ airdomains.co Nog PDF/EPUBAlthough lacking plot and a strong sense of cohesiveness Nog is the kind of story that manages to do what very few books I have ever read are able to do While reading you are at once confused and clear sighted yet this is the effect the book is supposed to have an effect that eventually becomes hallucinatory and painfully real I think what Wurlitzer is doing here is trying to capture the anxieties the existential hangups and the general atmosphere of what is was like to be alive in the late 60's and early 70's Obviously it wasn't like this for everyone but there is a general feeling of people trying to live in the now This is especially true of the first third of the book where we find Nog taking temporary residence in a communal beach house The narrator may be an extreme case but he is representative of an entire generation of people seeking just as the beats had the pure experience In Nog's case as much as he wants to attain the zen like state hi

    PDF/EPUB Nog eBook õ ↠ airdomains.co Nog PDF/EPUB10242019 Eureka I just realized “Nog” is “Gon” spelled backwards Read on How could I have forgotten this book? Easy it was mediocre On a scale of 1 to 10 for bizarre this is an 11 I give it three stars because there's no accounting for taste Don't worry there aren't any spoilers in this review So where to begin? Start with Donald Barthelme add the benign elements of William S Burroughs throw in some endless tape loop narrative of Alaine Robbe Grillet where the same scene and dialog endlessly repeat themselves as in Project for a Revolution in New York simmer over a low psilocybin flame then slide this concoction under the door of a padded cell with only a tiny suare window high up in the door Set R D Laing or Franz Kafka or both outside the door to intone grace over the whole business and Voila you've g

    PDF/EPUB Nog eBook õ ↠ airdomains.co Nog PDF/EPUBA novel that attempts to operate by subtraction uasi buddhist a bit like the documented bit of the life of Simon Lynxx Nog is Nog but Nog seeks to be rid of Nog Have a hard time knowing how much is Nog’s doing vs how much is being done to Nog Is he like Gautam on a path he chose? Or has the path chosen him like an early onset dementia? At any rate I enjoyed the uncertainties and found the Beckett comparison apt for we've even at one point got Nog in bed together with the seldom but regularly opened door opened only to admit a hand conveying a dish of let’s say unseemly b

    PDF/EPUB Nog eBook õ ↠ airdomains.co Nog PDF/EPUBWurlitzer’s writing elides your grasp for meaning or connection Words appear words you know and that have previously provided information but in Wurlitzer’s sentences this information always slides away It is a poetic style this writing A style that parallels the thinking of his main character who works to avoid all connections and meaning built on memory and thought It is as if his main character who is not Nog and yet sometimes has Nog living within him resides on the very edge of awareness An awareness without memory to hold him down or planning to limit his experience An awareness steadfastly although that implies a des

    PDF/EPUB Nog eBook õ ↠ airdomains.co Nog PDF/EPUBNog is a story of a man coming in terms with his hallucinogenic consciousness roaming between uncertainty and devotion Charged by a self chasing pursuit the narrative strives to de construct the identity of characters while progressively ridding memories of their evidence By taking on the aesthetics of a neglected western American landscape the vivid acts of moving his body through this terrain becomes of a process than a purpose In an era of ambiguity and indifference a nomad finds alternative means to justifying rationales of reality by legitimizing convictions through the invention of an artificial god and reactively assuming impulsive rituals which will themselves to the immediacy of the present moment rather than attaching hopes to unforeseen projections of future or a system of factsThese anarchic journeys maintain the reader with a sen

    PDF/EPUB Nog eBook õ ↠ airdomains.co Nog PDF/EPUBFor a story of such creepy events it's eerie and maybe even refreshing how deadpan the narrator is This could have been told in overblown psychedelic style but stripping away that artifice pares the story down to essentials of action and inaction and resists making particular meanings out of events or images That's also what kept me from being completely engaged though as much as I liked the wide open landscape the story drifts through and the way every character is as hard edged and grim as cowboys in a western the deadpan voice keeps the story from feeling like much is at stake even the big dramatic blowout if it counts as one happen
