Read in November, 2010

This book really idealizes/sentimentalizes writing programs, almost to the point of being an advertisement. Everyone ends up as successful as they want to be, basically, and nothing interesting happens after the protagonist beds his ice-queen teacher. (He seduces her by screaming "O lovely Pussy!" below her window.)

The book is devoid of (intentional) humor and all the characters have slightly annoying weird names: Roman, Bernard, Miranda, Phebe. I kept wanting someone to eat a Hot Pocket or fart or something.
