"God, being defined by Saint Augustine, as follows: 'An infinite sphere, the center of which is everywhere, the circumference nowhere.' "

'Tante Melia is sitting in a corner fingering a rosary. Uncle Ned is repairing a harness. The three grandfathers and the two great-grandfathers are huddled near the stove talking about the Franco-Prussian war.'

have you ever read The Recognitions by William Gaddis?

Liam, I gave The Recognitions a try a long time ago. Over my head. Maybe I will give it another try sometime soon.

It is one of the best books I've ever read, maybe the best!! It is pretty weird and confusing at points but it is super worth sticking with it. Just so many passages that make my mind melt. I bring it up because I sorta sorta see an aesthetic or something connection between your art and the types of things Gaddis was going for in that book. Then again, you may just not like it!
