Review by

Locked and loaded. And it even gave me some new thoughts and feelings about things I thought I'd found my happy or unhappy medium with long ago (Deleuze, logocentrism - but not, thank you, Derrida's fucking persona, only his ideas). And if it's a little overpsychoanalytic, well, that's just the neurotic, psychotic old twentieth century. I do hate how everything is always "shown" or "demonstrated," though. How about "suggested" or "argued"? Pretty sure some of that shit is mutually contradictory. Odd choice, even in a reference work.
