Book: Lancelot by Walker Percy
Reminds me of: Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, the movie "Closer," other things I can't place.
( um a terrible ton of quotage here )
(also, there are like a million great quotes in his other book which I read first, The Moviegoer, and which kind of had no plot and was less good, but parts of it were incredibly worded and so true, but my fingers are all typed out for tonight and I still have more clothes to sort through. Like why do I have clothes from when I was in 8th grade? SRSLY?)
