I get the feeling that I will love Theroux a little more with every book of him that I read. And you know what? The man has written a lot of books. A LOT of books. Just thinking about all the ones I haven't read yet makes me all giddy with anticipation.

"My Other Life" is a fake biography (which is why I'm filing it under biographies). But it could be real. It feels real. In a typical Theroux fashion, he puts himself out on the line in a way that makes you...feel. I know no other writer who gets the reader that close and personal, regardless if it's a travel book, a fake biography or simply a novel. I worship him.

(take that, critics. You just don't get the genius. *walks off with nose up high until she trips over a stack of books*)
