Rant as compared Jim Dodge's Not Fade Away
If one has read Jim Dodge's novels 'Stone Junction' and 'Not Fade Away', its hard to find the novel Rant inventive or original. Yes we love the idea of 'Nighttimers', rabies as a plague, and how lovely an analogy it all is to homosexuality and AIDS. However the bulk of the story is borrowed.
