Seriously: Never read a book of his I liked. I should LOVE him. Like Mailer, love Pynchon, Updike not so much.

Still, I won't say the fact that I didn't really get his work means he is any less than a literary giant of the past century whose passing should be noted with great sorrow, and a question:

Where will the literary giants of the 21st century come from, or more specifically what medium will they work in?

I haven't seen a really good AMERICAN novelist come along in the last 25 years.
