    Advocate of the Underdog

    While I know you're not supposed to subvocalize while you read, mouthing the words as you go, I find myself doing so, sounding out the syllables. There is something about this book not merely visual, but beyond that, a pleasure in the words. I have been trying to find what I so like about this book, but part of it is simply pleasure in the reading. Or the hearing, since I see that the second part, originally titled The Infernal Grove, is available read on cassette. That must be amazing, and hopefully it makes it to DVD. In terms of the sheer pleasure of words, this is the best book I've read in English. However, there is something more. There's also an answering Amen! that comes from deep within as Muggers again and again exposes the oppressions and lies of our times, as well as the dizzying propaganda machine that makes it all happen, since many of these lies were knowingly propagated by the leading journalists of our time. It all makes one despair or listen to punk rock, in my case both, and results in a third thing: addiction to Mugg. I find myself devouring everything he wrote. 'In certain strange epochs,' wrote Chesterton, ' it is necessary to have another kind of priest, called poets, actually to remind men that they are not dead yet.' Perhaps also a prose stylist, not a poet, and a dead one, startling us to realize we are still alive.
