That’s a very cool place to live. The great Conan O’Brien grew up there and so did the Kennedys, I think. I could look that up but I don’t want to be wrong, so let’s just say they did. So the sad thing about growing up in the ’90s is that there were tons of bookstores everywhere in the Greater Boston area, but so many of them have closed down. It's like payphones. Wordsworth in Harvard Square was the best bookstore ever, which closed in 2004. One that is still around is the New England Mobile Book Fair in Newton, which is actually a massive, amazing bookstore that isn’t mobile at all. I spent so much of my childhood there buying amazing books at super-good prices. It’s honestly the most fun environment. My dad would bring us there and we would sit and look through books for hours at a time. It’s a total must-go. Thanks for liking my show and books! (less)

The level of comic observation in that book is so good, I had to put it down many times just to let Franzen’s words soak in. I also wish I had written The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. It’s so cinematic. Why hasn’t it been made into a movie?

“You should know I disagree with a lot of traditional advice. For instance, they say the best revenge is living well. I say it’s acid in the face—who will love them now?”
