DNFed at 50%.
If only I didn't know what happened at the ending... until then it's a story of an impoverished man, a classic struggling artist, wandering in the streets with hunger.
Felt very Tropic of Cancer at first, but unlike Miller, the protagonist blames God for all his misery. It is less obscene, less misogynist... but also less interesting than Miller. It feels more like a character study than a story (even though it is), and even if in parts it was emotional, those were too rare to keep me interested.
