really liked it
bookshelves: adult, funny, lead-boy, inside-baseball
Read in August, 2012

I'm in the book business so this would probably be a little "Inside Baseball" for an average reader but I enjoyed a lot of the inside jokes and despaired at the cutthroat descriptions of the different aspects of the book business. It's also a little meta (sometimes a little too meta) but overall I found myself sucked in by the twists and turns of the story within the story within the story. Red herrings abound and it's a mystery and a love letter and peer critique all at once.
