The Galena Grade School Invitational Basketball Tournament by Tim Malone
"Great look at small-town grade school basketball in northwestern Illinois in the mid-twentieth century. Malone’s colloquial storytelling and author asides had me rolling—especially when reading it in his voice in my head. Five stars!"

“Bret Easton Ellis, taking on the narrative garb of a mass murderer in American Psycho, was, surprisingly, never himself a mass murderer (at least according to a lot of people–I won’t comment on what he sometimes does to an English sentence).”

“I have been writing my heart out all my life, but only getting a living out of it now, and the attacks are coming in thick. A lot of people are mad and jealous and bitter and I only hope they also can be heard by an expanding publishing program the size of Russia's. Because it's not a question of the merit of art, but a question of spontaneity and sincerity and joy I say. I would like everybody in the world to tell his full life confession and tell it HIS OWN WAY and then we'd have something to read in our old age, instead of the hesitations and cavilings of 'men of letters' with blear faces who only alter words that the Angel brought them.”
Jack Kerouac

Gretchen Thanks for making me a friend. If it's to much to ask, why did you make me a friend?
