    3. I haunt Washington DC and environs. (I haunt them because I do not live here; I pervade its essences; I appear at its locales and then disappear from them; I am known and unknown here; some friends would claim I am dead, it has been so long since they've seen me, while others have shared a drink with me last evening; I haunt this city because my mortal life extends before and behind me, but drifts off at the horizon of both points, into a nothing-neverness-void, where I will ultimately be worth [...]

    4. 9. Are you a censor? Do you tell people not to say “girl”? Shame on you! If nothing offends you, you’re a saint or you’re psychotic. If a few things offend you, deal with them--fairly. If you’re often offended by things, you’re probably a self-righteous asshole and it’s too bad you weren’t censored yourself--by your mother in an abortion clinic. --From “List of What Porn Is (and Isn’t)”Larry McCaffery compares Expelled from Eden: A William T. Vollmann Reader (2004) to Bruce [...]

    5. There aren't many Readers that get you excited about trying books you've not yet gotten to; a lot seem to entomb writers. This one doesn't. Of course, it helps that, with William Vollmann's productivity, a Reader can never catch him standing still.

    6. What looks like a spotty teenager holding a gun to his own head (yes, really) in the author's photo about sums it up. Apologies to Vollmann worshippers, I'm sure he's great. Just didn't find any evidence here.

    7. I plan to keep reading Vollmann's books, particularly his whore novels. He's a terrific writer. His openness to experience is truly inspiring. Reading him I think, Damn it, I live right here in this city of crazy people and I don't nearly get as much from it as I should. Vollmann will make you want to talk to strangers. His implacable (yest-still-unconsummated) death drive is also something to behold. Personally I have no desire to travel to the magnetic north and nearly freeze to death (for bas [...]

    8. A mixed bag, and a good resource to orient yourself as a reader as to whether or not Vollmann's worth your time or what *kind* of Vollmann captures your fancy.I haven't read any of his phonebook-sized novels, and this reader didn't really make me want to. Why? Because the dreariest, most self-indulgent sections here are excerpted from his longer works. It's no wonder that many of Vollmann's letters included in this volume are jeremiads against editors, as his fiction seems badly in need of one. [...]

    9. Vollmann is both the worst and best writer. At times he is so bad that it is a wonder his editor ever let those rank jumble of garbage words and sentences- if you can call them sentences-run through a printing press. But there are other times when he must be taking some really good drugs because he conjures up some really brilliant pieces. This reader is a good place to start with Vollmann since if you are a serious reader there will come a time when his name will be passed around the circle of [...]

    10. I got a soft spot for this gun wielding, prostitute loving, million page book writing nutso-nerdo. I think sometimes if I was smarter, and crazier, and got beat up more in high school, I might have ended up like him. So, I read a fair bit of Vollman (and buy and don’t read a fair amount more). This one is for either the completist (because of the nice, short biographical pieces including one on his time at Deep Springs College, or for the total novice who would like to read about the time he t [...]

    11. No other author is quite like Vollmann. The publicity photo features the pimply young man/writer holding a .380 Baretta to his head in 1985. His profile of the Afghan Taliban in November 2000 for the The New Yorker contains the uncanny predictive statement: "soon Afghans will be hijacking American planes and bombing embassies everywhere". Tremendously varied and uneven material--pictures of and meditations on San Francisco whores and skinheads coexist with serious meditations on tribal and natio [...]

    12. It's hard to be a fan of someone who's most widely known as a guy who writes about about frequenting prostitutes, but there are so many other layers to him. This book is a good way to sample the layers, and for better-read Vollmann fans, it provides insight into the scope of his career, especially through unpublished works, letters, and disparate magazine articles he's written. IMHO, Vollmann is one of few living prose writers with a sophisticated, clever writing style. He could rewrite a comput [...]

    13. Vollmann is interesting, and I'd definitely recommend this reader to anyone who'd like to get into his work but doesn't know where to start. As with most anthologies, it was a mixed bag. Some pieces I loved and will come back to, some I didn't and won't ever read again.Overall: 3 stars. I don't think Vollmann is ever going to become a favorite writer, but I'm glad he's out there doing his thing.

    14. I cannot recommend Vollmann enough and have become a bit of a fanatic over the years. Since I don't have the energy to go back and rate/review each book I have read of his, I will add Expelled for Edem to my list as a sort of catch-all. However, if anyone is interested in getting into Vollmann, this may be the place to start. He is an exceptional writer and master observer of our ancient, modern, and post-modern world.

    15. Shockingly good for a book of seemingly random essays and excerpts. Includes one of my favorite Vollmann essays "Melville's Magic Mountain," a lyrical piece about Mt. Greylock and the composition of Moby Dick. It also contains some great teaser pieces from unpublishedImperialmanuscript, which are tantalizing.

    16. The preface and introduction to this reader effectively ruin it. Skip those first pages; rip them out!The journalistic and otherwise non-fiction passages throughout are really rigorous and sober, as sharp and deep as an criminal inquest. The man is never, ever, ever, superficial.

    17. This is not necessaary to read because Bill Vollmann is obscure or hard to follow, in fact he is the opposite. However, this helps illuminate the recurring themes found in the thousands and thousands of pages he writes and assuages some of the fears you have about his crack and hooker habits

    18. If you find Vollman a little overwhelming, and let's face it he can be, this is a nice reader that has gathered bits and pieces from here and there so you can delve without losing your head.
