Death Sentence

Here is perhaps the worst sentence I've come across in a very long time. This one from a book titled Novels of the Contemporary Extreme by Jean-Michel Ganteau.

"The mixture of anadiplosis, anaphora, and quasi-epanalepsis, underlined by the powerful use of epizeuxis and the correlative hammering of the spondee, such rhetorical and prosodic concentration provides a hyperbolical acoustic image of revenge."

And he ain't kidding.

What am I reading right now? Wonderful poems by Patricia Young published as Here come the Moonbathers and I've just started Kahlo: The World Split Open by Linda Frank.
