    1. Read this before you go to Burning Man. Its crazy half-hallucinating, half-poetic prose will get you in the mood. I imagine this would be even better if read out loud amongst a group of co-conspirators inside the scooby doo mystery machine. But, I must add. Burning Man is bazaar but was not as decadent as he describes. I spose if you go looking for that kind of thing it could be, but we found it rated R. I loved Burning Man for the community, not the debauchery.

    2. Very good prose. I hadn't read too much about Burning Man before this book. Pendell is a great writer - he successfully incorporates Zen/Buddhist style of prose into his works. I had no idea how much nudity and drug use and out and out debauchery goes on at The Playa at Burning Man. It's really a fascinating subject. Perhaps I'll make it out there one of these years. I'll keep hoping.
