    1. How Insensitive, as it follows the travails of a young man in the big city, wandering drunkenly from one party to the next, meeting models, and so on, all in the early 1990s, reminded me strongly of Jay McInerney. Except that, I hasten to add, it reminded me of Jay McInerney when Jay McInerney was good. That is, the McInerney of Bright Lights, Big City, not the disappointing McInerney of Brightness Falls and then The Good Life.I hasten to that particular clarification because, unlike the later M [...]


    2. Pleasantly surprised at just how well this book held up. It's probably even better twenty years later, because my focus wasn't just on how well Russell captures the times and trends, but the emotional arc of young men struggling to get up on their wobbly legs. Just great. Can't believe he's not recognized as one of the greatest Canadian writers working.


    3. I just finished How Insensitive by Russell Smith in one day, over about two solid sittings. Rather proud of myself; I haven't seen myself read like this in a long time. I bought it a few weeks back.Smith is a Queen's grad. A copy of this book sat in a display case for "up-and-coming" Queen's writers in the middle of Mac-Corry Hall, just outside the Geography computer lab. The book had a section all on it's own along with a portrait of Smith as a "young punk" next to a pillar outside Stauffer. I [...]


    4. Goodbut not as good as it thinks it is. I enjoyed it, but it now seems very much of its time. Nothing dates faster than pop culturebut sometimes, nothing ages better. We'll see how this novel does in the future


    5. I read this book a long time ago, but I really enjoyed the story. I was a young urbanite at the time working in some non-descript office job that didn't really matter to me, so it was timely for my situation.



    6. Against my expectations, I liked it, especially the bit about how Louise was struggling to hold the romantic attention of guy who beats her up.


    7. Smith's debut, and while it certainly worked to set the stage for what was to come, it was as fulfilling as his later work.
