it was amazing
bookshelves: funny-stuff, all-time-faves
Read in January, 2010

Sam does it again. This novel takes an unassuming (and seemingly unfunny) premise about a dude who wrangles large financial donations for a school and turns it into an outright laugh riot. Not only is this just as funny as the amazing Home Land but it also showcases Lipsyte's ramped-up, amped-up ability to deliver killer sentence after killer sentence. This might turn out to be my fave of 2010. Yeah--I'm already saying it.

Alison Hallett I said that already, too! Before 2010 even started, I think. So funny.

Kevin He's reading at Powell's on March 26th! You should interview him. He's very funny and nice.
