__________ and __________, about a year ago, RMM posted this comment in The New Yorker discussion:
I laughed too. In fact, I laughed throughout the novel. It's telling that the Bolanistos never mention his sense of humor. Not dark enough...
I must say that I did not laugh throughout the novel. I think RMM overstates his case there. However, there are certainly humorous parts. The passage to which they were referring does not occur until Part V, however.
I mentioned my own favorite above, which concerns Rosita the philosopher.
