// in the arty enclave of Capitol Hill, Seattle \\ Capitol Hill - - an arty enclave - - who knew????
// the absurdity of modern art \\ but it was financed and underwritten by the CIA - - of course it's absurd! - - oh, the author is an American, and who would ever expect any American author to be familiar with the facts???!?!?!?

I liked the Idea of the book but ultimately found it more gratingly sophomoric than insightful.
