So Much for That: A Novel

So Much for That: A Novel - Lionel Shriver Loved it."Accompanied by a strumming guitar and uplifting flute cadenzas that in his boyhoodd typified alternative folk services in his father's church, these warnings were delivered with a lilting, lobotomized pleasantness -- the tone of voice in which one might read bedtime stories to small children about mischievious bears and over-curious kittens. Meantime, ads for high blood pressure medicine alternated with ads for salt-and-vinegar potato chips, ads for high cholesterol medicine with ads for two-for-one pizze, ads for acid reflux medicine with ads for a chain's baby-back ribs. Averse to inferring conspiracy, he perceived only an odd sort of balance." p.115
