    Well, I've pledged my support. I'm afraid I'm not familiar with Burgess' oeuvre, but I AM extremely familiar with Dos Passos and I've read a few of your novels and the whole idea seems intriguing.

    Can I comment about one thing in the article? This quote from Burgess just drive me crazy: "I thought it might be amusing blatantly to steal the Camera Eye and the Newsreel devices" He's determined not to split the infinitive, but in so not doing he just demonstrates why you sometimes SHOULD, because man, as written that looks awkward as all hell.
