Myles He published an excerpt from this in the NY'er (he contributes to that magazine a lot for an LA guy) and it was good but I wasn't sure I wanted to read the whole book. Have you read Cruel Shoes? According to your picture you are a basket. -M.

Megankellie Yeah, but you might like it as a comedy nerd geek weirdo. I liked it as an academic thingie and, well, I just liked it. CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR RECENT LIFE EVENTS. -basket
