BIRD-HOGS by R. Ostermeier (Broodcomb Press)
The Philosopher and the Quack in 2008
“How did I get into the world? Why was I not asked about it and why was I not informed of the rules and regulations but just thrust into the ranks as if I had been bought by a peddling shanghaier of human beings? How did I get involved in this big enterprise called actuality? Why should I be involved? Isn’t it a matter of choice? And if I am compelled to be involved, where is the manager—I have something to say about this. Is there no manager? To whom shall I make my complaint?”
― Søren Kierkegaard
The full context of my review of A TRICK OF THE SHADOW:https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2022/02/04/a-trick-of-the-shadow-by-r-ostermeier/
A major attritional apotheosis of fiction. An impossibly disturbing book.
