Not my favorite: at times too heavy-handed, too obvious. A disjunction here and there between his amazing style and his neurotic purposes. Still, wonderful, and a necessary part of his oeuvre: a look at gender and gender relations that IJ mostly lacked. There's something going on with him and the "interview" format that I've been thinking about and talking about with M; an updating of the monologue, perhaps? (Since the interviewee is always voiceless.)
Alls I'm saying is we tend to sometimes be so narrow-minded about the myriads of different things that go into making somebody into who he is. I'm saying we get so knee-jerk and condescending about rights and perfect fairness and protecting people we don't stop and remember nobody's just a victim and nothing is just negative and just unfair - almost nothing is like that. Alls - how it's possible even the worst things that happen to you can end up being positive factors in who you are.
