I gave up after a few pages, quickly deciding that I didn't like this sort
of Wolfe - folksy prose and weak humour, as opposed to his more literary
efforts like TBNS.  I was tring to introduce a well read friend of mine to
Wolfe last year, and her local library only had FLF.  She reported to me
that she read half of it and then skipped to the end "because it was very
bad".  So 0/2 from this end.
