I think this is my favourite book evarr.
Which is nice 'cos I've just finished it.
Anyone else fallen for it a bit?
maybe even top 5. I love it. I have a hat which makes me look like Ignatius apparently.
that makes you look like a ginormous beast? Amazing!
I am reading this book now, am up to the political party bit. Enjoying very much.
The Neon Bible is rubbish though - even if written as a 15 (ish?) year old.
possibly my favourite line
that he gets furious at the earliest possible opportunity. And the image of him going down the street selling hot dogs is genius.
angry at the cinema about the woman in the film he's watching and demands that she be raped. the way he says it is so funny.
"It is a truism of human nature, that people learn to hate those who help them. Thus, my mother has turned on me."
made me laugh on the tube.
I really love the character of Burma Jones too.
character other than Ignatius.
You want me be a doorman s'well as mopper, bes' be payin' me more than fi' dollahs.
but whoever is playing ignatious tends to die of a heart attack before they get the go ahead on account of needing to be morbidly obese for the part - johns candy and belushi were both going to do it.
until I can direct it.
I'll force-feed doctornovocalcords until he's right for the part.
i have a great photo of him wearing aforementioned hat. it's quite special.
you'll be pleased to know. It's towards the end rather than the middle.
