I read about half of the Warsh novel last night. I hadn't read a novel in so long I was out of practice. This technique of grouping a series of personality traits, a personal history, etc... around a proper noun seemed strange to me. I had to remember who the characters were. I had to prevent myself from skipping over paragraphs where the information content seemed comparatively "poor." It is an excellent novel, one that I never would have read were it not for the name of the author and the Sun & Moon imprint. I like Warsh's poems that are a series of aphorisms/observations:

"You could say the characters in The Bible were obsessed with hiding their nakedness."
