Some very good points Alex.
My feeling is that though GN does allow Dick to make the move towards adulthood (and Titty as well, together in the final pages) the arguments for it being a metafiction along with PD and ML are strong. I do think AR wanted a way of bringing things to a close, and if you ignore some aspects of the plot and even the writing he does so quite effectively.
