When you’re learning about something and dissecting it, I don’t think you’re really through until you don’t understand anything about it. If you study something and you find all this stuff about it, you just went skin deep, so if you keep going and going, you should be left with a fucking mess of unanswered questions. If you take any subject and keep asking, “Why,” without stopping, you’ll get to a point where there really [aren’t] any clear answers.

Padgett Powell, The Interrogative Mood: A Novel?

I loved this book, and ended up reading much of the ending to my wife while she was feeding our son late at night. Every sentence in the book is a question.1 You can hear Powell reading it here and watch him reading it here. It will go next to Joe Brainard’s I Remember on my shelf of favorites.

  1. I wonder if the writer of this hilarious Guy Fieri review has read it as well?
