The narrator is an upper-middle-class kid from the Midwest who got into a big-deal East Coast college or two the text mentions Harvard and Middlebury and dropped out, alienated and fed up, to wander the country, but it doesn't present the decision - or anything else - as redemptive or revelatory.

The mood of alienation carries throughout, which makes it a bleaker read but, to me, a more interesting one than something like Cometbus, where the alternative lifestyle and the underclass are fetishized and romanticized to sometimes-nauseating levels.
It's closer to my own personal sentiment in a lot of ways. It reads a bit like Conor Oberst trying to be Hemingway - i. Jun 03, Dana Jerman rated it really liked it. This book is American, anarchistic and important. Feb 26, Jess rated it it was amazing Shelves: own. I'm copying this from my review I posted on my blogspot here I found Manifesto stuck between bright, colorful titles I was already familiar with in a Boston Newbury Comics. The whole marketing strategy here is brilliant: a completely blank cover, spine, no publishing info on the inside, just a blank white shell full of white pages with black text.
There are no chapters, it has no plot. Arguably, there are no characters, besides the anonymous narrator. The paragraphs don't even connect. Most of I'm copying this from my review I posted on my blogspot here I found Manifesto stuck between bright, colorful titles I was already familiar with in a Boston Newbury Comics.
Most of the ideas inside repeat themselves, over and over. Its pessimistic and then skyrockets back to being hopeful. There's no structure and, if I'm being honest, no point. Yet, after having just read it, I can say Manifesto is one of my favourite books.
The writing is painstakingly simply, which adds to the overall strength of the prose. It makes all the thoughts that much more blunt, when you think they couldn't possibly be any more so. Most of it is pessimistic and harsh; the narrator's outlook on life isn't always the greatest. But at times he will go from bitterly cursing people and their lives to reveling in the beauty of a simple scene over the span of two paragraphs.
The conflicting emotions twist together throughout the story, painting a series of highs and lows for the author. Because it's not a linear story, it moves fast, jumping around, without any stopping points. This made it incredibly difficult to put down. I read it in three sittings, I mean it's only pages long, it didn't take much. I loved the brutality, the grittiness, the vagabond lifestyle painted out. It left me feeling thoughtful and reserved, some passages made me tear up, some nod in agreement, and some laugh mirthlessly at the narrator's stupidity.
I can't help but love the underground quality of the book too. Run a Google search. What do you find? A handful of pages maybe? I've read every blog post I can find on this book, but in saying that, it's not that many. The book is shrouded in so much anonymity it's almost off the grid. I love that about it. I love that if I list it as my favourite book, no one is going to know what I'm talking about.
I love that it has to be spread to others from the people that love it, not by magazine book reviews or carefully planned advertisements. Call me a hipster if you want, because, well, I probably am. It's not an adventure story, or a great example of character study. If you want a thriller to keep you up at night, a romance novel to pull the strings of your heart, or a beautiful fiction that makes the world feel real, well, it's none of those books, but it does all those things.
I know a lot of people hate this book - its down-on-life tone, its rambling, its disjointedness. But I know it's also touched a lot of people that have leafed through its pages. If you ever see a copy somewhere, standing out against brighter titles, you should just shell out the few dollars for it and hope it changes your world.
Nov 21, Garrett Zecker rated it did not like it. It is a rambling stream-of-consciousness self-indulgent novel about, yes, an American asshole. One element of this book that is different than the one that I wrote in my own self-indulgent, rambling book is that this character seems to lack a clear awareness of how lucky he really is.
Album) has women in his life he seems to not even be aware of and hardly names. He has a reli "I was the typical American asshole. He has a reliable, loving family that seems to put up with his wandering but also keeps him in booze, airplane tickets, and college education.
He swims through this life Album) financed debauchery complaining about everything. This character has everything I didn't have, but the way the book is written makes me hate him rather than empathize him.
The book is primarily written in what feels like endless "I want" statements, at almost a humorous misinterpretation of any number of MFA workshops begging for the character to want something. This unnamed character seems to want everything, completely unprepared for the internal changes needed to grasp self-awareness, humility, patience, and selflessness. Instead, the book is our narrator's verbal masturbation perhaps best illustrated in a portion where he wishes he was in a war because he's bored.
Does he develop? Only as far as writing down his complaints and wanting to distribute them to the world. I don't have much that I enjoyed about the book. I went in without any expectations, only knowing that I had seen it on the shelf of Newbury Comics and passed among the hands of many friends precisely how I got my copy. I personally think it is a skip for most every reader, except perhaps the misguided early-twenties trust fund dropout set.
I can understand why the author wishes to remain anonymous. Here, I present my abridged version in the event that you'd rather read this instead: "I hate books. I want things I can't have. I love books. I really hate books and school. I want a relationship but people hate me. I should read a book. I can just read on college quads if I want rather than attending college. I hate books. I want you to know books are pretentious. I think libraries are awful. I want books to be great. I want to be great but I'm not good at anything.
I should buy a typewriter and write a book. I am an asshole. I think the world needs a book about how I hate books and I love books. Read my book. Dec 14, Jon Cone rated it liked it Recommends it for: Late high school, early college. This book manages to both mesmerize and bore. It is essentially a catalog: a two-hundred page list of disappointments, confusions, rejections, contradictions, desires, and existential observations.
The book moves between what saddens us to what merely annoys and distracts, yet it struggles even so to discover what is good in the world. The considerable power of this book is weakened by its own relentless persistence: cut in half the book, which is more prose poem than novel, would have been a wo This book manages to both mesmerize and bore.
The considerable power of this book is weakened by its own relentless persistence: cut in half the book, which is more prose poem than novel, would have been a work of strange and pure genius. Aug 12, Cardine rated it it was ok. If I wrote down a post it note for every random thought and action I made and any little thing I'd ever witnessed, and taken all those scraps and put them in a binding in somewhat of a chronological order, it would be this book.
This may be one of those books that is impossible to put down when you are in a slum in your life and feel the common ache, but one you can't make yourself pick up when you are feeling content with life, Manifesto - Blank + Jones* - The Logic Of Pleasure (CD.

Still waiting to see how it might depart from Album) antecedents in any real or innovative way. Feb 27, Alex rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: anyone. Get lost in another life. This book has a completely blank white cover and consists of the story only, with no title page, author, or publication info beyond a small, easy-to-miss name, website, and email printed vertically in the margin on the last page.
