Read in January, 2009

This was a really, really fun read. I was particularly proud of the fact that I understood each and every one of the many theatre references peppered throughout the story. I feel like a dolt for having read this before reading "How I Paid For College", which seems to hold a lot of the back story of the group of friends from this one, but this was a great stand-alone book nevertheless. Acito has a great talent for realistic dialogue and hilarious inner-monologue bits. After reading this, I'm kicking myself for missing his debut play at ART here in Portland this year. Ugh. Hope they run it again next year.

PS - An extra-fun tidbit: a good friend of mine is acknowledged by the author. I had no idea we had mutual friends. Cool.
