This article states that "This was an important act of self-definition for the author and narrator, both immigrants to America..." but below it says he was born in Chicago. He wouldn't be an immigrant then, would he? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:49, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
I read "The Adventures of Augie March" in an hour. It's about Jews. Myles325a (talk) 10:41, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
And, to be serious, I've just finished it, and it's one of the best things I've read in years. It's like Fellini at times, like Umberto Eco at others. At first, I thought it just too densely packed with detail; it never seemed to draw breath, but then the great caravan of its lists and designs, its innumerable illuminations, its wondrous delineation of character, adumbrated or fully drawn, some on every page, and the notice it pays to the phenomena of all life in the humblest guises, the blushes, the movements of the hands, the looks in the eye, it is all just superlative, and it won me over forever. This is not a book to given out at a writing school. The mastery here is on a level to which very few humans could begin to aspire. I'm going to read them all, but only a couple a year. It's too rich for more than that. Myles325a (talk) 07:12, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
