    Hello – new member here and delighted to find the website.
    Has anyone written on / discussed here the myriad allusions and references, often very precise, between ATPH and Genesis? I only picked them up on a second time reading through ATPH but once realised they jump out at one.

    Welcome aboard. I don’t recall any Forum threads on ATPH and Genesis but I’d love to hear what you’ve come up with and I’m sure others would as well.

    Joe – don’t be concerned with the relative quiet here this week. Intellectuals and academics party hard over the holidays and a lot of us are still dealing with hangovers.

    One of the most striking Genesis parallels in ATPH is the Edenic description of the bolson and the la Purisma ranch nestled therein. John Grady is very much the Adamic figure tempted and brought down by Alejandra who is both Eve and the serpent in one tight package. There are, FYI, numerous discussions of La Purisma as a type of paradise in the critical literature. Sniff around a bit. Like the allusions themselves, the discussions will jump right out at you.
