bookshelves: to-read, the-new-new-new-new-thing, to-read-soon

I feel like I've already heard of this, and I think it's another one of those smarty hip-ish books where I'm the primary demographic audience and of course I'm going to read it pretty soon. (Though that's what I thought about An Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes in New England, which I just finished, which blew, so WTF, who knows.)

Anyway! Here's what the Greenlight Bookstore newsletter says about this one:

Each chapter of the writer's debut introduces a new resident of the Los Angeles neighborhood with singular experiences that delight in challenging conditions. It is easy to get carried away by Madonnas; the story reveals the bond between characters with perfect timing. This is a strong debut by a writer with a remarkable breadth.

Oriana cool! I'm glad he wasn't a jerk, at least. I'll let you know how the book is if/when I actually get to it.
