Bad Behavior Reviews
I bought this because I'd read his excellent "Models Behaving Badly". It came as a surprise then that what I liked best in this book was his fiction section. The atmosphere he creates and the ideas he looks at in simple essays really somehow resonated with me though I've no real similarity to him in age, background or religion. " Boyhood" and "Prost" will linger with me I suspect.
