Possible Reasons Why Ray Fucking Davies’ Biography Is 1900 Pages Long

IMG_4198

  • Publisher is trying to go out of business like in The Producers, and half the pages are blank.
  • Ray Davies was secretly Margaret Thatcher.
  • “Johnny Rogan” pen name for William T. Vollman.
  • Only ten words per page.
  • A dare?
  • Author’s previous book: How to Conquer Writer’s Block.
  • You think this is long, you should see the book about Dave.
  • 400-page tangent about the history of Greenland.
  • Typesetter accidentally pressed the “double-space” button.
  • Is it possible that Ray Davies is fascinating?
  • Also contains the Spanish, French, and Mandarin translations of itself.
  • Author didn’t have the courtesy to break his obsessive logorrhea into smaller chunks–like, say, on a blog–which hid the scope of his madness.
