Foster and Ellis together again not for the last time
I truly wish I could get through Foster's longer works. I've managed two short stories--but I am so put off by post-modern games in literature that I find it impossible to read. On the other hand Ellis created a sort of sick tour de force in Less than Zero and has not since equaled that early work. Of the two, I would like to like Foster and find Ellis unreadable, but for me, it is exactly the reverse. And because Ellis is readable but had nothing of interest to say--I find that I cannot read either.
By the way, the blogpost referenced above is an elegant consideration of the two writers well worth your attention if you are interested in either of them.
