I consider this cheap for some reason.
Post pet peeves, I guess.
It fits the wider circles of that category because it can be interpreted as an elliptical "Kafka (is) on the Shore" or "Kafka (had fun) on the Shore" or "Kafka (is standing in a queue to get ice cream but the longer he waits the longer the queue gets because the iceman keeps letting other people go first and the ice cream is getting more and more expensive by the hour and Kafka does not know why he is standing here in the first because he is lactose intolerant and when he finally reaches the counter the iceman is berating him for being judgemental and he has to back to the end of the queue or even better go to the other ice shop that has no customers because it is too cheap but there is no one working there and then Kafka realizes he is the one working there and that he was the iceman all along) on the Shore".
>Writers who clearly haven't considered their style.
Read a set of short stories by Proulx the other day, and it was terrible. I think it was terrible because there wasn't at any point any consideration for who
or whatwas narrating the novel or the style of the narration. Awful.
