Vollmann hasn't won the Nobel Prize for this yet? I've given up on humanity.

For Seven dreams in general?

Or for Dying Grass? It seems so fuckin huge. Is it good? How is it?

Of course it's fucking good. It's just like 1100 pages.

I'd say start with The Rifles if you want History Bill. 13 Stories if you want Prostitution Bill (which all Bill is).

Why didn't Tolstoy win the Nobel?
Why didn't Proust win the Nobel?
Why didn't Joyce win the Nobel?
Why didn't Chekhov win the Nobel?
Why didn't Nabokov win the Nobel
Why didn't Ezra Pound win the Nobel?
Why didn't Pynchon win the Nobel?
Why didn't Philip Roth win the Nobel?
Why didn't Virginia Woolf win the Nobel?
Why didn't Mishima win the Nobel?
Why didn't Umberto Eco won the Nobel?
Why didn't Delillo win the Nobel?

Because those Swedish fucks don't know shit.

What gives you that idea?

I'm not the exact fan of Vollmann (have read only The Atlas and it was fine, but nothing breathtaking); haven't read anything from Seven dreams series, I'm not an American and English isn't even my first language.

So I asked how is it; to know if it's worth getting and reading (and, possibly, what's good about it and why is it that good). Maybe a little bit of a discussion, you know.
