Getting dissed for replying. You learn something new everyday. These two ^ never responded to anything looking at post counts. Wow, what a great place to learn about style!
Talk about typical pattern here: Step 1) Ok, I may dress lame but I do it for the ladies Step 2) Replying to everyone who attacks you for being an idiot while saying you don't care (sure) Step 3) Saying "whatever, you have a lot of posts so you suck" Meanwhile a bunch of moronic "style not fashion" donkeyfuckers chime in with their 2 cents wisdumb. Hint: if you're going for "style not fashion" it is a given that you'll fail at both.
You got something against TC Boyle in general, or did you make the mistake of reading all his stories at once? (Individually, they can be quite nice).
I haven't read all of his work, but jesus the ones I read were super writers-workshop-y and I get enough of that in writers workshops. It's just that for a dude who is supporting himself by writing, his stories seem really unpolished to me, either completely unedited or edited into a textureless neutral paste.
