Five word book review time. Just finished, “Tough Guys Don’t Dance” by Norman Mailer. It reminded me that sometimes it’s good to struggle with a text. This was a convoluted mess of a narrative. The prose was fantastic in spots. But the story itself tried way too hard and was at times overwrought. It was bold and there were some high points. But, I was never clear on what precisely was happening. This is recommended if you want to be challenged.

Even Good Folks Struggle. Skip.
