Listen, Patrick. Writing a book that really didn't work as a book (novella, vignette, who cares what you call it), and which you completely acknowledge doesn't work as a book (or etc.), means that when you rationalize that away by saying that it's for the special broken people because your main character is as broken as your writing, you're just pissing off those of us who recognize that it's not a good book even more than you did as they were reading it.
Here's a thought. Write something better next time.
