Yes (and it's debt to A Clockwork Orange rather underlines the weakness in the "fad" argument.) I also quite enjoyed Motherless Brooklyn, but I thought the author could have done more with the protagonist's "hindrance".
The writer suggests, however, that there aren't too many "hindering conditions" that haven't been done.
