Conhecimento Comum



One of the few LOA volumes that is remarkably depressing while boring at the same time. The 3 stories contained in this volume demonstrates the inability of LOA to revive certain literary works. Supposedly it is meant to be an insight of the drug hazed & revolt over the Vietnam War, but fails miserably. The author of these works left much to be desired.

lots of poignant scenes. i donated my copy to a library my university was setting up. there was that wonderful pathetic passage about "the weak straining to look agreeable to the strong" or something like that. also that passage about mary magdalene and jesus was quite humorous, in a bleak and sad way.
