Re: Ian Banks writ The Wasp Factory

Indeed he did, although I took that reference as meaning there are also shades of Banks in Kennedy Toole's style (or vice-versa), a comparison I wouldn't completely disagree with (although I'm possibly biased insofar as I loved A Confederacy of Dunces and also loved almost everything I've read by Banks, which runs to dozens). But I agree, it isn't clear.

Aside from that, sounds like a decent read, especially if it reaches some of the heights of either Banks or Kennedy Toole.
