    A 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 unique in the prose and construction here turns up again in Wurlitzer s next two novels, but whe A 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 unique 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 Quake, nor the terminal minimalism of Flats Though this is the novel that touted by Pynchon and leaving the deepest cult mark, it feelslike a test run of tools that would only become meaningful later Sure, there s meaning here too, I m sure, and the introduction makes some interesting observations on deconstructed 60s identity, but with so errati...

    The shadow of Samuel Beckett flits across this sui generis tour of the 1960s U.S communes and counterculture Rudy Wurlitzer s debut novel is a subtly hilarious and existentially bleak road trip where identities dissolve and reform quicke...

    Although 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 la Although 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...

    If I had to choose two novels as character studies of the 60s counterculture, one would be Kotzwinkle s The Fan Man, a playful romp through drug addeld New York The second and much darker of the two would be Wurlitzer s Nog Set across the beaches, backwoods, crashpads, and communes of California, this tentative story follows the moment to moment desperations of a Manson like wanderer, who either stole his identity or is trying to not remember it and his previous crimes as he bums around the s If I had to choose two novels as character studies of the 60s counterculture, one would be Kotzwinkle s The Fan Man, a playful romp through drug addeld New York The second and much darker of the two would be Wurlitzer s Nog Set across the beaches, backwoods, crashpads, and communes of California, this tentative story follows the moment to moment desperations of a Manson like wanderer, wh...

    Nog 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 becomesof a process than a purpose In an era of ambiguity and indifference...

    For 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 gr For 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 ...
