I haven't read it yet. Maybe I will. Maybe I won't.

This is what rankles me. What's the big idea comparing her with literary giants like Henry Miller? Jack Kerouac, in my opinion, is vastly over-rated. He's no literary giant. His writing is impenetrable.

I don't know. Maybe I will read her book. Might learn something, (but I kind of doubt it).
