"God is a concept" (John Lennon)
The full quote is even better; "God is a concept by which we measure our pain."
I thought it was "Yoko is a concept by which we measure our pain."

Wait a minute. Is this Dan Fante?
Given the grammar, spelling and syntax used, I very much doubt it.
Not me... I'm just here for the complimentary drinks.
Odd. That's what made me think that it is Dan Fante.
One thing perceived in two different ways. Imagine.
The pretzels are good too. Try one.
I have to claim ignorance on that one FL, having never read any Dan Fante.
I just assumed (being a writer) Dan would be able to pen a sentence that flowed and mostly made sense in a traditional way.
If that's how Dan writes... well...
What the hell do I know? I'm just a reader.

I didn't realize the you were still alive, John.
May I introduce the 2nd greatest writer in the world:
Dan Fante's Dad: John Fante!
(You are John Fante, of course?)
I was a young man, starving and drinking and trying to be a writer... It seemed as if everybody was playing word-tricks, that those who said almost nothing at all were considered excellent writers. Their writing was an admixture of subtlety, craft and form, and it was read and it was taught and it was ingested and it was passed on. It was a comfortable contrivance, a very slick and careful Word-Culture... one day I pulled a book down and opened it, and there it was...The lines rolled easily across the page, there was a flow. Each line had its own energy and was followed by another like it. The very substance of each line gave the page a form, a feeling of something carved into it. And here, at last, was a man who was not afraid of emotion. The humour and the pain were intermixed with a superb simplicity. The beginning of that book was a wild and enormous miracle to me. I had a library card. I checked the book out, took it to my room, climbed into my bed and read it, and I knew long before I had finished that here was a man who had evolved a distinct way of writing......."
And book is.........?
Ask the Dust. That's from the introduction.
